Stateside Getaway

Does anyone else plan their vacation around when they can get reservations at certain restaurants? Just me? Ok. Well, I just returned from Washington, DC with my boyfriend and going through these photos has made me so hungry. We ate a lot of great food and most of the time I remembered to take a photograph before heading in face first. Oh yea, and we did some sightseeing too.

Things we saw a lot of in DC on 4th of July weekend:

  • American flags
  • Food trucks
  • Pageant girls wearing sashes
  • Secret service police
  • Museums
  • Stars, stripes, red, white, blue, and eagle-adorned attire
  • Presidential Monuments
