Matthew and I had been talking about going to DC for a while, and we finally made it happen. We stayed with friends in Alexandria, VA for most of our trip and we also spent a night in Baltimore visiting family and friends. We had a wonderful time, even though the drive was 10 hours each way!! Thankfully, I have an amazing husband who drove the whole way and let me nap occasionally in the car 🙂 Here are some pictures from our trip.
CHOMP! Shark teeth at the Museum of Natural History.

Bones of some ancient animal…I forget which one.

Good old Kermit…It’s not easy being green 🙂
Matthew was taking my picture and this happy toddler wandered into it. I love it for so many reasons, but if I explain them to you, you’d think I was weird.
The obligatory picture in front of the White House…
…Where oddly enough, we ran into Denis Leary
Matthew and his cash in front of the Treasury Department…The idea was funnier in my head.
Camden Yard at sunset. We had a great time watching the Orioles beat the Yankees.

The rotunda inside the Capitol. So cool!
