Well, as they say, better late than never! I've been eager to share my adventures from last weekend, but no one ever warns you how exhausting it is working a 9-to-5 job. Whew! After each busy day, I just don't have the energy to motivate myself to sit down and get my posts together. But, alas, I have a moment to catch my lovely readers up on the events from last weekend.
Sadly, the weather was a little dreary here in the District of Columbia last weekend, so my photos are a little reflective of this. But nonetheless, it was a wonderful weekend exploring the area a bit more. As my first actual weekend being a tourist-in-residence I decided to head up to the mall area to visit the Smithsonian museums and walk around the sites.
I spend about half of Saturday exploring the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum - which is too cool. Such a fun place to poke around. I really want to go see Night at the Museum 2 at the IMAX here since it was partially filmed at this very museum!
The rest of the day I walked around the area - from the Capitol to the Lincoln Memorial to the White House - just taking in the sights and sounds of our nation's capital. It's still so exciting for me to be in the presence of such history and change.
This weekend I am hoping to catch the Smithsonian's Folk Festival. Hopefully I'll keep up better with the updates!
