Our family is heading to D.C. tomorrow for a whirlwind tour. We have been wanting to take the kids there for awhile and now is our chance. Just a side note here... because of the nature of how hectic life has been, is it weird that I would rather stay put right here and vacation in our own home? Can I get an amen to that? Seriously, I am soooooo tired.
Since we deplaned from England in Chicago several short months ago, it has been one event, one project, or one broken appliance after another. Whew! I'm tired.
So my hubs and I sat on the couch a couple of nights ago to determine whether or not we really should go. We concluded that the places and people we are going to see are important. We also wondered when we would get around to doing it in the future. Family vacations will not always happen and since the kids are growing up so quickly, we have limited opportunities. We want to take advantage of the time we have together now.
After D.C., we'll be driving to Baltimore to the Inner Harbor. We have some friends there that we will be seeing. The next stop after Baltimore is New Jersey. My home state. We'll be there for a quick 3 days and then it's back home again. We just might be driving in the direction of Niagara Falls, on our way back, which is a sight to behold.
Things to do on our agenda during this week long adventure are as follows:
The monuments lit up at night
Walk around in Georgetown & have dinner
The White House
Lots of walking hand-in-hand
The Inner Harbor
A water taxi
Maryland crab legs
The Jersey Shore
An Italian Feast in Hoboken
Cuban or Puerto Rican Food. They're both delicious!
Life long friendships reunited
Walking on Washington Street
Eating a slice of Benny Tudino's Pizza. What! That slice is giant!!
We want to go crabbing, but there's just not enough time
Ice Cream Cones
Lots of photos!
Giant Italian subs from Lisa's deli or Biano Mono's
A Lobster Tail at Georgio's Bakery, it's cake, not seafood
Visiting the cemetery to see my mom and dad
Seeing the New York skyline
and that's only the beginning of the list!
We'll miss our pool, our friends, our little kitties, our new chickens and the fresh eggs they lay, our comfy home, and so much more!!
Thanks for hanging with me through this busy summer in which I post very little.
