On our last day in DC we decided to do a little sightseeing. First we headed into downtown where we hit up Bobby Flay's burger restaurant.
Yum! Sarah and I shared the Crunchburger (yes - with potato chips on it!) and the Bobby Blue Burger (with bacon and blue cheese) and of course fries and onion rings!
Then we walked off some of those calories. (Garrison's favorite part!)
On the walk there is a museum in pretty much every building! We finally decided on the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.
There is so much to see! You could spend more than a day in here, but we had much more we wanted to see so we headed out after checking out a few exhibits.
Little Miss Reese and Mr. Max looked pretty stinking cute in their matching Bjorns! :) The babies did amazingly well on this trip! I was so impressed!
Then we decided to check out this Hop On - Hop Off tour bus. There is just so much to see and it is so spread out we figured this would be the best way to get to as much as we possibly could!
Yes, the go-go gadget arm managed to get a picture of all of us on the bus! :)
1st stop on the bus was the Korean War Memorial.
Then on to the Lincoln Memorial and Reflecting Pool. We were really excited to see the pool until we noticed there was no water! :( Then we saw the sign explaining the renovations. Bummer!
But the Lincoln Memorial was very cool.
Our last stop was the Arlington National Cemetery. It was an unbelievable sight to see.
We got to witness the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. It is amazing the precision that they have with their movements.
After the cemetery we hopped back on the bus and decided to head to the top to check out anything we had missed on the way back to our car. Little did we know that the ride back included getting on the highway! Have you ever been on top of a double decker bus on the highway??? I wouldn't recommend it, especially not with babies! It was crazy windy and a little scary! We did get a pretty good view of the Pentagon while we were driving though.
I thought this pic of Josie and Sarah checking their maps was pretty funny. Debating on whether or not this bus would get us back to where we had parked! No worries, it took us right to it! (Whew!)
After all the sight seeing was done, we got dressed and headed out to a nice dinner to celebrate Erin's official birthday.
What a great way to end this once in a lifetime trip!! I am so glad to have these wonderful memories with some great friends! Thank you for putting all this together for us Trey!!
