DC: Weekend in the Capital

_MG_8510 - Version 2

Last weekend, Tammi and I took a quick trip out of town and headed down to Washington. Yes, she'd just been there, but hanging out with friends meant bypassing all the main attractions that she hadn't ever been to.

So this time, we altered our typical strategy and sought out the tourist sites we usually avoid. It was a great time, but consequently a little exhausting.

Saturday was a gorgeous day, with temperatures well into the upper-70's, so the crowds were out in droves. The Mall is almost like an amusement park of history and patriotism, there were crowds and lines and buses full of people. It was an interesting experience seeing all the families and tour groups and students dressed in matching tees.

It was a whirlwind weekend, but we packed a lot in. I'll be posting about the highlights over the next couple days.
