Luis in Washington D.C. (Part I)

After a day in Philadelphia, we had a day to relax and celebrate my birthday (!!!)IMG_2566 

Why (how?) am I 26?!  I’m old…just look at that grandma sweater in da club!

And then were off the next day for two amazing days in Washington D.C.  But wait. before that, we spent a day in Philadelphia, visiting the Penn Museum, since we got free tickets from the library.IMG_2571

The next morning, we set out on the 3 hour drive. My good friend, Maeghan, graciously offered to host us and she was absolutely amazing.IMG_2639

She treated us so well and I couldn’t have asked for more.  So lucky to have a friend like that.

We drove down early-ish on Sunday morning, arriving mid-afternoon.  We had a few hiccups trying to get into central D.C, which was a bummer, but once we got there, things were great.DSC_0182  

We started by walking to the National Air and Space Museum at the recommendation of my parents and the rest of the world (and their mothers).DSC_0190  (In case you don’t know, all of the museums in D.C. are FREE so there is something for everyone).  Here is a list of them all.

We actually didn’t love the museum, but I think it would be a great option for someone who is into airplanes and space, or someone with kids.

We walked down towards the Capitol building, stopping to have a mini photoshoot 😉DSC_0204 DSC_0202 DSC_0209 DSC_0211IMG_2587

We sat there for a bit, trying to regain some of our energy since we were both exhausted!IMG_2598DSC_0250

From there, we walked all the way over to the Washington Monument.  It looks so close on the map!  It’s not…DSC_0264 DSC_0271DSC_0311

After that, we were way ready for dinner and Maeghan chose an awesome diner for us!IMG_2626IMG_2628

We headed back to Maeghan’s and settled in so we were ready for the next day.  That’ll be in the next post!DSC_0371
