DC DAY 2

Road Trip:
A series of road or away games.

Welcome back to day 2 of our DC trip! We started out the second day at the National Mall. I was so consumed with the museums we went to, I completely forgot to take photos. We started at the National Air and Space Museum which was a lot of fun. I've always been enamored with airplanes, so I had a great time. We also bought tickets to the planetarium-- those things are always the coolest! After that, we walked over to the Smithsonian American History Museum. That was more Andrew's type, but it was still a very educational experience!

The next stop was Arlington National Cemetery. We both really have a special place in our hearts for JFK and we wanted nothing more to go and pay tribute at his grave. The experience was unlike any other and I'm really glad we were able to spend some time there. 


I loved how it looked over the entire city.


After Arlington, we started our tour of the memorials. First up, MLK Jr. Memorial. I'm a big MLK fan, don't get me wrong, but I was really underwhelmed by the monument. I personally thought it was a little offensive... he looked so angry/upset! I just never picture this MLK when I think of him. 



Across Tidal Basin, was the Jefferson Memorial. Since we were running behind, we skipped this memorial and just admired it from affair. (That and my feet were barking!)


Then we powered through the rest of the memorials. It was nice that they were all so close to each other! 






My favorite stop from day 2 was by far the Lincoln Memorial. I specifically requested we see it as the sun sets so this was our last stop on the day. It was really such a magical place and I couldn't have asked for a better way to end our list of spots to hit!

After a quick nap, we found a place for dinner called Firefly in Dupont Circle. I kid you not, it was one of the best dinners I've had in a long long time. The restaurant is dedicated to supporting local farmers and hand picking out everything. If you have a chance to ever stop by in DC, I highly suggest you go!


And they even give you the check in a mason jar :)

And we end with some fun photos from the restaurant...


Hope you enjoyed the recap! If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!
