Meet Me In DC - Day 2!

It's time the photos and a recap from our second day exploring DC!

First stop, Georgetown!! We went to Georgetown Cupcakes to sample their new September flavors...they were absolutely divine! We are huge fans of the show and were also hoping to catch a glimpse of the owners, Sophie and Katherine, but they were no where to be found. Oh well! At least we got some tasty cupcakes!


Caramel Apple, Apple Cinnamon, and Salted Caramel cupcakes! D and I ate two a piece as soon as we got into the car! We couldn't resist! And they went nicely with our Dean & Deluca Chai Lattes! I also love that place.

Next it was on to the National Archives to see the original copies of the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, and the Constitution.


We were lucky enough to have time to visit 3 of the Smithsonian Museums. First we went to the Museum of Natural History. It was super crowded in there, so we just hit the highlights and moved on.


 The Hope Diamond

 Then we visited the Smithsonian Museum of American History. This was the entrance into the exhibit where they had the star spangled banner illuminated under black lighting. Super cool. I wish I could have taken a photo of it...but that was not allowed.


This was the hat that Abraham Lincoln was assassinated in. Also super cool.

 Pieces of the World Trade Center after 9/11

 Medals of Honor for the various branches of the military.

I absolutely loved the exhibit showcasing all of the inaugural dresses worn by each first lady through history! It was awesome to see how styles have changed over the years and to see the personal styles of each of the first ladies! I must say, Jackie O and Michelle Obama definitely are the best dressed of them all!


 The Capitol Building

 Squishing the Washington Monument. Classic DC picture.

 The Smithsonian Museum of Art

And our final stop of our DC adventure...

I ate THE BEST burger I've ever put into my mouth at this eatery! And the photo below is of one of their famous hand-spun milkshakes...Toasted Marshmallow! They even topped it with two toasted marshmallows! We had such a blast eating through our way through DC. I am so thankful for the time we got to spend together exploring our nations capitol! And soon enough I'll be back in Germany enjoying Europe again. Life is good!
