The Adventure Starts Here: Washington D.C.

Washington D.C.

Chris and I went to Washington D.C. two weekends ago. We went down for the Penn State game and decided to make a weekend out of it and do some touristy things. We had amazing seats at the game. We were in the 6th row... the best seats we'll ever have at a Penn State game since it's very difficult and expensive to get those kind of seats in State College!

That night we went exploring before dinner. We found this ugly elephant and since I love elephants, Chris made me take a picture with it :) We then headed to dinner at Ruth's Chris (I told you it was one of our favorite restaurants).

Sunday morning we decided to take a bus tour of the city since the weather was so nice! It took us all around the city and then we got off towards the end of the route so we could go to the Air and Space Museum... it was a lot of fun! We then packed up the car and decided to make a short stop at the White House. We tried to find some street parking nearby, which proved harder than we thought. It appears almost every parking garage is closed on Sundays, and every street spot was taken. When we had almost given up, we finally spotted someone leaving and grabbed the spot immediately.

We had a fantastic weekend and dreaded going back to the daily grind of work. Thank goodness it was only a 3 day week!
