Road Trip Part 1 - DC!

Last week, John and I headed off for a spring break road trip, and the first stop was DC!  We had the best time exploring the city, visiting the zoo, museums, and Capitol Hill, and enjoying dinner with good friends!  Here is a re-cap!  Enjoy!  :)

Made it into the city! 

The zoo was first :)  It was the most beautiful day!

Gigantic turtle

This guy was the funniest -- he had a rough day ;)

 We checked into our hotel, and then ventured out to find a yummy restaurant for dinner -- we decided on Sichuan Pavilion, and we LOVED it!

Then we did an evening stroll up to the White House - so pretty.

The next day, we wandered around the National Mall.....

Museum of Natural History

The Capitol

Beautiful Cherry Blossoms had just bloomed!

Tour of the Capitol...

Supreme Court

Library of Congress

AND the Air and Space Museum!

Then ended the night with dinner with friends at Central.

It was a wonderful (but short!) 2 days in DC -- we can't wait to go back!
Next up...Princeton!

LOVE the DC photos. I'm currently living in the city but school is keeping me busy...your post inspired me to check out the sights once summer rolls around.
