D.C., Day 1

Helloooo. Well, our first day in D.C. has been mostly travel. By the time we got to D.C. and got checked into the hotel, it was already mid-afternoon and we were starving. We found a place right down the street from our hotel and ate, and then it started raining! Awesome. We eventually made it to Target to get a few things we left at home (shampoo, hairspray, etc.) and now we're in the hotel, eating dinner. So, this isn't a very interesting post. I barely took any pictures today.

From the plane:

From our hotel window:
We're staying in Alexandria. That tall building is the George Washington Masonic National Memorial. I'm not sure what that means, exactly, but it's right outside our window. But take a closer look!

Zoomed in, from our hotel window:

If you look really hard, you can see the Washington Monument, too. Exciting stuff.

I'm not sure what tomorrow's plan is just yet. We're here for 7 days, so we're in no rush. We'll see what the weather does tomorrow. For now, I'm going to prop my feet up.

Be sure to head to Georgetown. It's my favorite area of town and after you can walk or drive up and down all the streets where the embassys are. Martin's Tavern is one of our favorite restaurants there. It's where JKF proposed to Jackie. Have a blast!

FYI: The Masonic Memorial is all about the masons. Remember how my dad was a mason. George Washington was a mason, along with several other presidents.
