Washington DC Weekend

For Presidents' Day Weekend, Mike and I ventured down to DC to see a couple of friends living down there.  We had a great time, walked around the historic sites and monuments, and just enjoyed time visiting with our friends.

my friend Matt's awesomely bright street

Matt's townhouse

Their townhouse

There were strays EVERYWHERE that I wanted to bring home!

Amazing bakeries all over the place

That brick building was the first concert The Beatles played in America after they played Ed Sullivan!

Necessary "stand in front of your state at the WWII Memorial" picture

 New MLK Jr. Monument - with the paraphrased quote they're getting rid of soon...

FDR's dog Fala was always my favorite!

Matt, me, and Mike

Daffodils in front of the American History Smithsonian!

 Matt brought us to Union Market, a couple of blocks from his house - and it was so great!

 Heading out to Alexandria to see Mike's friends
This is what Mike ate for dinner: a hamburger topped with bbq pulled pork, onion straws, beer cheese, and on garlic texas toast!

Yup, I got the Android "Hot Light" app!

 Took the 5 of us all of 6 minutes to destroy this dozen

On our way back, we stopped in Delaware to see where Mike's dad grew up!
