So, Friday night after the Prom we decided to drive to DC real early (3:30am) to try to avoid traffic. It worked but boy were we tired on Saturday. We first stopped in Baltimore to pick up my sister and eat at One World Cafe (mmm so good.) We got to meet my sister’s roommates ridiculously awesome cat Matilda. Best cat ever! Then we all took the train into DC and by the time we checked into our hotel (Omni Shoreham) it was way late in the afternoon. It was such a beautiful evening. Perfect temperature. We went and saw the white house, Lincoln memorial, the Washington monument and well just walked around a lot. I was doing good until we had to walk up hill like 10 blocks to the metro at the end of the night.
Sunday Kev and me hung out by the pool for a good part of the day. It was so relaxing and being pregnant totally got us some lounge chairs at a packed pool. hehe! It felt so good to go swimming. Its nice to feel weightless and refreshed. Then we went to the national zoo which was right up from our hotel. The zoo was a let down. It was 1. way to hot even for being like 4:30 and 2. there were no animals to be found. Every exhibit we went into there was a cage but no animals. It was a let down followed by lots of jokes about why the zoo is free. We did see red pandas which are totally awesome.
Monday, my sister Amy came back into the city and hung out with us for the day. We watched the memorial day parade for awhile and went to the natural history museum. I love that place. The have a early human/evolution exhibit right now and you can get your picture taken and they will morph you into a “early human” oh man we were laughing so hard. We had a family in front of us in line that was making us laugh like crazy. The mom was so awkward and had the best (craziest) looking picture.
Overall it was a FANTASTIC weekend. We both LOVED dc and we loved our hotel and the area it was in. We ate at the best restaurants: Tryst every morning for breakfast, One City and Busboys and Poets for dinner, got to go swimming, explore a new city, spend time away together, visit with my sister and just have a lot of fun. I love 3 day weekends!!
