i spent the last few days in DC with conrad! i went down to host a dinner (which i’ll share more about later!) and brought conrad along since he’s still breastfeeding and little and thought it’d be fun to do something with just the two of us. we took the train down and had the best time wandering around my favorite old blocks and neighborhoods and of course eating all my favorite food while we were at it. a few photos from my iphone…
my big boy on the train heading down! he’s a great little travel buddy, i’m so proud of him. and since my hotel had a TV, i watched the men tell all episode of the bachelorette live, which is a show i’m kind of obsessed with this season, so it was fun to get to watch it in real time (i usually catch up on it online during the week here and there while i’m working on other things.) i’m almost embarrassed at how invested i feel in this season. like, i think and worry about the show way more than i should. what is happening to me!?
the night my train got in, conrad and i dropped our bags off at the hotel and marched ourselves straight over to capitol hill. because, probably my favorite neighborhood ever, and i miss living there more than you know! it was ridiculously hot outside and we were pouring with sweat, but i couldn’t wipe the smile off my face.
also, speaking of what is happening to me!… i bought a selfie stick. WHAT! seriously, what is happening to me. i am loving it! but i have to say, people that use these things have skills you guys because there is a seriously learning curve i am still trying to figure out. i ended up attaching it to my stroller (which was easier than holding the stick and conrad) to get this picture. haha! it’s a process.
most of my selfie stick pictures looked something like this. still figuring this whole thing out. but just wait, cause i have no shame. i’ll get this. the best moment of the trip had to be when i was awkwardly holding it out in georgetown trying to snap a photo and these two girls walked by and were all, “um. do you want us to take a picture for you?” ha!
even with the scaffolding, the capitol is so pretty. and so is that good lookin’ burger and shake from good stuff. IT FELT LIKE THE OLDEN DAYS.
and now, onto the important stuff. 2amy’s…. what i really came to DC for. (just kidding. but after the hosting dinner thing that brought me down to DC in the first place, this was definitely second on my list of important matters.)
the morning after my dinner, we stopped by the sculpture garden to explore and see friends!
just a little baked and wired love!
and a little carousel on the national mall love, too. can you believe after all those years living there and visiting since we’ve moved, it was my first time on that carousel? wish there would have been more time to see and do everything, but hope to be back soon! thanks for being so good to us, DC. i love you!
