The Capitol


I am pretty sure I am proud to be an American, but I know that I am proud to be friends with Team Rose. A week ago Tuesday we received a radical invitation to join our dear friends in Washington D.C. for the long MLK weekend. So, thanks to the encouragement of those here and there, and largely thanks to AirTran's "Start the New Year in a New City" sale, we decided to spend recklessly and buy our way onto planes, trains, and automobiles to join the DC party!

Once there we found out that even though this was their idea, they hadn't done any research at all! But luckily Ang and I saved the day again and had a host of good ideas on how to efficiently see the city while having plenty of good food and good times. And of course Katy, the human compass, was extremely helpful as always (by the way be looking for the TV release of "Katy the Human Compass" on discovery... seriously... http://www.compasskaty.discovery.com/ it is kinda like SurvivorMan or Man vs. Wild) Kristian did not contribute.

Okay, so maybe about 25% of the above paragraph is true, but we did have an amazing time seeing the sights and soaking up the precious love graciously extended by dear dear friends! Here are some pics of what we saw! Oh... and also, we got to see Sarah Whiting (who lives on the Hill)!! It was wonderful to see her again too even though she did berate us for being tourists.


The National Cathedral

This place was amazing! Def. worth the mile and a half walk in the freezing temps!




Hanging out at the Mall
Ang and Sarah outside Old Ebbit's after a amazing meal we all shared.



THE ZOO!!

The National Zoo was a must see for us obviously!



We found Texas and Michigan right next to each other at the WW2 Memorial... so we took this nerdy pic.

Korean War Memorial


Ang and Kristian at the Museum of Natural History

Perhaps this one is better left unexplained





What a wonderful trip!!! For more great, and very similar pictures check out:

Very cool restructuring, Wallaces. I like the new layout. Great trip, too. We're so thankful you guys ponied up the dough to join! Of course we did let you use our maps, so that saved you a lot of money.
