we started our first day off in DC last week with a big lunch at 2amy’s! last time we were in DC in november (we made a 24 hour VLOG that trip), we sadly didn’t realize they were closed on monday’s and weren’t able to go. you all know how much i obsess over this place. you can’t even try to argue with me that anywhere in the U.S. makes better pizza, because even if you are right, i’ll just refuse to believe you. (and yes, i’m super stubborn that way, just ask my husband.)
2amy’s is one of the things i miss most about DC. i think i’m blue in the face at this point from talking so much about it, but if you go, get the meatballs, the supplí a telefono (rice balls), the roasted olives and the margarita d.o.c. pizza (josh loves to add pepperoni to his lately, which has been growing on me, actually.)
now that that is out of the way, here’s a bunch of photos from our lunch! also down below, we walked through DC’s new city center which has the most gorgeous lantern display out, and took the kids to the spy museum where we spent several hours because they were having such a good time (it was our first time visiting that museum. very cool.)
it’s terrible, but i hold onto too many drawings from my kids. this one eleanor made had the prettiest color scheme going on that i was trying to figure out a way to bring it home without folding it to possibly frame. haha! i’m redoing one of our gallery walls in the apartment and it just went so well with the colors on the wall. sadly, we spilt a little water on the corner of it, so it didn’t make it home, but i want to find better ways of preserving literally everything they create! if any of you parents have any good ideas in efficient ways to save them, let me know!
caught josh mid sentence excitedly reporting to me that conrad was eating a pepperoni and LIKING it! it’s a big deal because i feel like they are slightly spicy. he ate several though! he’s a champ.
this kid. this face. this haircut. SAMSON, i adore you.
he wants to do everything eleanor and samson are doing, which is why he must color (or try) at every table setting where crayons are present. also, for those who have asked about my criss cross milk braids, HERE is a tutorial i put together for the blog a few years ago when my hair was long and i wore it like this all the time. can’t wait for my hair to finally be long enough for fun hair-do’s again! someone remind me next time i wanna cut it that i’ll miss all my criss cross braiding too much!
that suppli a telefono lookin’ all YUM right now.
and for those who have inquired about the kiddos watches, i don’t know how they have not lost them, but we gave them to the kids 2 christmas’ ago and they still love them so much! they are from amazon, and are waterproof, so they keep them on most of the time besides when i can talk them into taking them off and giving the skin underneath a rest. it’s been helping with learning to tell time, which we’ve been working on!
our first time to the spy museum and these guys LOVED it! that place was really fun, especially the air duct above a room which my kids crawled through like 7 times in a row!
there is this room where you think you’re in a submarine looking out a window at sharks swimming by and then a shark just starts attacking the window and it truly feels crazy real. in true davis family fashion, we had to stop and experience the shark attack about 12 times in a row. and for samson below, it DIDN’T GET OLD once!
do you see what i mean? he’d cover his eyes and then peek through playfully because he didn’t really wanna miss it! and then he’d laugh and ask if we could do it again! bless his sweet heart, it made my day!
conrad also enjoyed the shark attack, over and over again!
sneakily peering out at the people in the room below as they were up in the air duct! when we asked them afterwards what their favorite part of the museum was, it was crawling through the air duct!
such a great trip and so many feelings for DC. can’t ever get enough of that place. if you missed it, CHERRY BLOSSOMS and the RENWICK GALLERY and our WALK AROUND CAPITOL HILL posts from this trip. and here’s a 24 HOUR VLOG from the last time we drove down in november!
