These past three days have gone by so fast! My family and I walked up, down, and around DC until our feet hurt…literally.
On Tuesday, we went to the Smithsonian! We hit up the Museum of Natural History, American History, American Indian, and Air and Space! So much to see in so little time.
My favorite exhibit was “The First Ladies” exhibit at the Museum of Natural History. Lots of the first lady’s inaugural gowns were displayed beautifully with the shoes, purses, and jewelry they wore on there husbands special day in history. I love fashion and it was crazy looking at gowns from the 1920’s to present. I love seeing how the dresses have evolved and changed over time.
On Wednesday, we went to The Capitol, The Supreme Court, The Library of Congress, and The National Archives. It was crazy seeing the Declaration of Independence, US Constitution, and The Bill of Rights in person. Really, really cool.
We stayed in Old Town-Alexandria and walked down King’s Street to go to the Potomac Bay area. King’s Street has the cutest little shops and boutiques. We lucked upon this place called The Lucky Knot. This shop sells the cutest clothes and accessories of all the essential preppy brands including Kiel James Patrick, Southern Tide, Vineyard Vines, Lilly Pulitzer, and so many more. Needless to say, my brother and I were in heaven.
Today was our last day in Washington DC before we had to head back to Virginia. Considering we did most of DC tourist attractions, all we had left was to go to Arlington Cemetery. We took the metro there this morning and saw the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. It was quite impressive.
Washington DC is great. I really do love this city. There’s so much hustle and bustle and there’s always something going on. I truly enjoyed myself. But we’re flying back to Texas on Saturday and have to go back to reality…but I’m going to enjoy what time I have left on vacation!
Until next time. Xx.
