Happy 4th Everyone!
Writing to you today from D.C. where it’s hot, crowded and feeling very patriotic! We’ve conquered the sites and thought I’d share a few with you. I’ve been to DC twice before, but each time was in the fall and certainly with no hullabaloo surrounding it. Both experiences are great. Quiet and cool or hot and festive, either way it’s a wonderful place to visit.

One big surprise was the huge parade happening. Lots of bands, floats, music…it was a colorful time. Another surprise was eating fried fish on the National Mall. There are lots of special events set up, and one was Southern food. Their collard greens and sweet potato fries were really good – even eating these hot delicacies in triple digit heat.

It’s a short trip for us, but trust me we are packing in everything we wanted to do. Some of the places we visited are: Union Station, Nat’l Air & Space, Natural History, Botanical Gardens, the Castle, and American Indian museums. And, it’s not even dinner. 🙂

Enjoy the pix, and if you haven’t made it to DC yet, it’s a super place to visit.

Have a good one,
Kristi
