Brandon standing in front of the first plane that the Wright Brothers flew. Me in frint of a real Van Gogh painting! Well now I know where he ended up, in Maryland! Dishu begging for food... My Nikki Nail pedicure I gave myself. I even put a rhinestone in the middle.
I always start every holiday a couple months early. I like to have plenty of time to enjoy my decorations and think about the holiday. So with that in mind I made a halloween banner for me to put up as soon as I get home to Denver. I can wait!
Today Brandon and I visited Mt. Vernon which was George Washington's estate. It was really hot and because my legs look so disgusting from all the bug bites I have been getting I had to wear jeans. So besides feeling like I was melting all day, Brandon and I really enjoyed walking around Mt. Vernon. We got to tour the entire grounds and inside of the home. Brandon and I loved how colorful the paint in the rooms were, and how each room had its own color at that. I think that thier bedroom was my favorite. They even had his orginal bed in there still. I think that this was one of my favorite places that we visited. The home was so beautiful andit is right on the Patomic river so the views are really great.
Some of the Inauguration dresses of the first ladies. Michelle Obama's US Capitol Lincoln Memorial behind me. Flags around the National Monument The Korean War Memorial View of the Monument from Lincoln's Memorial. Inside the Lincoln Memorial. It wasn't humid but my hair was still greased out cause I didn't shower that morning :/ Lincoln's Memorial Vietman Memorial WWII Memorial Views of the front and back of white house Finally Brandon and I got to spend an entire day in DC along the National Mall visitind all of the memorials and seeing the White House. Once we got off the train the White House was right there. From what I saw on the map I thought it would be further away. So we were standing in front of it wondering "Is this it"? Once we realized it was indeed the White House we got really excited and started takigng pictures. It was smaller than I thought, and is literally right in the middle of everything. It was so wierd look and at it and thinking about how old it was and how all our presidents had lived there. After that we went and saw all the memorials and the Washington Monument. I think that the WWII memorial was my favorite along with the Lincoln memorial. Also, the weather was perfect. It wasn't humid, it was somewhat cloudy, and there was a nice breez for most of the day. Then we ended the day by eating at Potenza which was recommended by our nieghbor and friend Jenn in denver. Delicious!
