I've gone through most of the photos from our trip, so I'll be posting a little bit as a time instead of overwhelming one post with a ton of pictures. The first leg of our trip was spent in Washington, DC - neither Brent nor I had ever been so I was very happy to experience it for the first time together!
We stayed with one of Brent's friends on our first night there, so I got to explore a residential area of DC while Brent was sleeping the next morning. I loved all of the old houses and enjoyed the patriotism that was ever-present throughout the neighborhood.
I stumbled upon my first memorial while wandering around the neighborhood - the African American Civil War Memorial.
After Brent woke up we took our first subway ride (ever!) together to our hotel. We stayed at the L'Enfant Plaza Hotel
, which is within walking distance of the National Mall... we wasted no time and walked right down to explore.
What a sellout... ;)
We stopped for a little people watching and post card writing.
What a perfect day it was... not too warm, not too cold, and not a cloud in the sky. In the next few days I'll post more photos of each memorial!
