My week in Maryland was absolutely wonderful! It was a nice break from the day-to-day routine, and it was a fabulous way to become immersed in our nation’s history. I was constantly amazed by the architecture, the monuments, and the art work that infiltrate to the core of Washington D.C. I could probably write a novella about our various adventures walking around the city, or freezing fingertips at the beach, or perhaps being warned of the snipers atop the White House…. But, instead, I’ve opted to just post some of my favorite photos from the trip – with short and sweet captions!
Loved this bridge – took the photo from the car window on the way to Marge’s house.
Antiquing in Frederick was a lot of fun! Here’s a picture of me wearing my new burnt orange glove/mittens (bought at Chic to Chic Boutique) – they saved my hands from freezing off during the rest of the week!
Can’t take Marge anywhere…. Spilled her fake ice cream cone…. GREAT expression! 🙂
Sun setting on the beach in Delaware – GORGEOUS!
Sara & her mama attempting to stay warm on the beach.
BFF’s 4 EVER – written in the sand!
Amazingly, there was a noticeable difference in temperature between standing on the beach versus standing close to the water (where these puffy birds were standing), but I boldly ventured down to the water’s edge to photograph said puffy birds – almost lost all of my fingers, but it was still worth it!
Archway at Union Station
U.S. Capitol – for anyone wondering, yes, I did sing, “I’m just a bill, sittin’ here on Capitol Hill…”!!!
U.S. Library of Congress
I really wanted to walk through here, but it was closed off to visitors… This photo and the one below were taken through the glass.
Got a wide angle view of the Capitol Building from the Library of Congress across the street!
World’s friendliest squirrels
The Lincoln Memorial really caused me to pause and stare in awe. The monument is massive and very detailed!
