the 8th grade trip that I didn't get to take

Last weekend Ben and I took a quick trip down to Washington D.C.  We decided on Tuesday that we would be taking the trip and really only had about 48 hours to see everything.  Yes, impossible I know, but we tried our hardest.

We made a pit stop in Hagerstown, Maryland to visit his Memo first.  We had lunch at her country club and it was nice to spend some time with her.

Then we were off to Arlington, Virginia where his Aunt Kay lives and was so generous to let us stay with her for the weekend.  We hung out in downtown Arlington for a while and grabbed a quick snack and drink.  We visited with his aunt for awhile and then went off to Georgetown for the night.

Saturday we got up early and walked ALL OVER the National Mall and through D.C.  We saw as much as we could and we utterly exhausted by 6 p.m.

Thank goodness his aunt wanted to make us dinner that night because I don't think I could have done anything else except sit, eat, and drink.

Sunday morning we went back into the city to check out the National Cathedral and the National Zoo.  We stopped back in Arlington for a quick lunch, which included $2 Bloody Mary's!!, and then we were back on the road and headed home.

Overall, it was a great weekend.  I saw so much that I've never had the chance to see before and it was great to do it all with Ben. 

Hopefully more travels will be in our future, although with both of us working weekends now, that might not be possible anytime soon!
