A long weekend in Washington, D.C.

One of my husband and I’s favorite place to visit is Washington D.C. I loved there during college and went back after college .  We lived there again  when my husband was in his fellowship training and one of our sons was born at Georgetown,  my sister and her family live there, my son and nieces live there, and this summer my daughter is there interning!

Each time that I get to go DC I like learn or see something new! This time was the Renwick Gallery.

I had heard of it before but never had the chance to go. On Saturday morning, my son picked us up and we headed there. We got there before it opened, so we walked around the White House waiting for it to open.

Cool hanging glass that lights up differently each time.

The coffee mugs were made for veterans.
David’s Best Temple. A glowing sanctuary..every tiny piece of carved wood is where people have written personal notes.

As well as seeing new things, I love to go back and visit some of my favorite museums. One of them is is the National Portrait Gallery – I could spend all day in there!

My daughter is interning in a Mississippi Congressman’s office and she gave us a lovely US Capitol tour! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

One of my husband’s favorite places in D.C. is the sculpture of Albert Einstein, which is next to the National Academy of the Sciences. He makes sure that each time we visit D.C., we make a stop.

Of course, one of our favorite things to do is go to wonderful restaurants! From The Tombs to the Tune Inn to Rasika to The Plume at the Jefferson to Succotash and to Central and Rosa Mexicano — they were all delicious!

    I especially like your photos of the fuzzy dog and the leg of the guy having a heart attack. I figured you’d tell us what your sweet dog was trying to warn you about !!
    Your husband sounds like a really special person.
