I have been a slacker in the blogging world. I did not blog about my first year anniversary which was on Mother's day. We did take a trip on Memorial Day weekend for our anniversary to see Sexy Husband's brother and sis-in-law and our nation's capital. I had never been so it was very fun. We arrived at the Reagan International Airport and was greeted by this sight. I thought it was beautiful! What a grand ole flag!
I actually ended up going to three states in which I have never ventured on this trip: West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Maryland.
We got to go to Gettysburg because the brother's house is only an hour and half away. I had never been there either. I loved this picture of Sexy Husband and the old cannon. We walked around downtown, saw bullet holes from the Civil War, lots of old fashion things and ate in a nice pub restaurant. The only thing missing was sweet tea ha ha! We also went to Harper's Ferry in WV, which has been kept to look like it did back before the Civil War.
We went into D.C. on Memorial Day and got to see part of the National Memorial Day parade. Then we hit the highlights of the city.
This was at the Lincoln Memorial end of the mall. I thought my camera did pretty well for a night photo. We look scraggly but that is because it was so humid we were melting! The hot weather followed us to D.C. from AL!
We went to the National Museum of American History and saw Oscar the Grouch, Kermit the Frog, and C3PO. Tuesday it was abit rainy so we went to the Spy Museum, which I highly recommend to anyone. They don't let you take pictures so I have nothing to show for that but we did get one last picture in front of the Capitol before we took the Metro to the airport and headed home.
P.S. One nifty thing that happened was when his brother was taking us into D.C. we stopped and ate at a Persian restaurant (which had the best hummus I have ever had in my life) and one of the workers, who was clearly Iranian, had lived in our AL city! It was so funny to talk to this heavily accented man in D.C. about Alabama. What a small world!
Until next time...
