Weekend Excursion (Washington DC)

It has been a long time since I've shared any personal photos with you all. Too long in fact. This means I haven't been bringing my camera out as much as I should. Bad Christina.
B and I went to DC this weekend, my first time ever visiting the city. We spent some time with family and did a speed tour of the monuments. I definitely hope to spend more time exploring the city in the future, preferably wearing more comfortable shoes. My favorite sites were the National Gallery and the Lincoln Memorial (I mean, he's just so huge!). Driving home to North Carolina on Sunday, we actually ran across a few snow flakes too. The only snow I've seen all season. All and all, it was a pretty lovely weekend. 
What about you? Have you been anywhere new recently? Any favorite spots in DC I should check out next time?

DC! I hope to get to DC this summer, it's on my list! I went to Lexington right before the holidays and it was wonderful. I am planning a Boston, a DC and an Atlanta trip for this year.

Glad you had a lovely weekend.

Aww, glad you had fun!

Is the third picture from the bottom the WWII memorial?

I visited the Library of Congress the last time I was in DC. So far, it was my absolute favorite spot to visit, but I'm a librarian, so I'm a little biased I guess. ;-)
