DC with Friends

Yesterday we drove to Washington DC to hook up with some friends.  We met up with Wendy and Kristie and their children.  I met Wendy in Orlando last year, but this was the first time I met Kristie in person.  It is always so neat to me to meet online friends in person.  She was such a sweetie. 

I also love watching kids who are fully engaged in life.  Fearless and bold and daring and soaking it all up.  So it was a real treat to me all the way.  DC was just icing on the cake.  I wish I had more pictures to share, but since my speedlight broke, I am still trying to figure out how to take pictures when it is gray and drizzly and when we are indoors and it is dark.  If you have any tips, I'm all ears.

Here are the few I did snap:


We hit the Museum of Air and Space, which was very nice:
 
 
 
Afterwards, we went to Capital Hill to eat at the Good Stuff Eatery where I had the best hamburger I've ever tasted.  It was very touching to see DC at night.
 
 
I wish we could have had a longer visit because I would have loved more time with Wendy and Kristie.  We are definitely going to plan a longer visit next time.  Thanks Wendy and Kristie for making our day so great.

I enjoyed out time too. When you come back we should do a photography tour. :) BTW, LOVE the two bottom pics. I really love this city. It's so pretty and romantic, in a Anne of Green Gables kind of way.
