the district

{before I say anything else I have to tell you that ice cream is homemade thing mint, mocha fudge, and pistachio. I died}

I've said it before (and I will say it again) living so far away from family has been hard. so when my sister and brother-in-law booked a trip to DC I was really excited. it seemed like a great time to see them and visit my cousin and his new cute wife during cherry blossom season. 
I can't decide if I love or hate the fact that all the metro stops down there look exactly the same. not like at home.
// I had to post this because its the longest escalator I've ever seen. it was crazy. //
first stop was mt.vernon. so beautiful.
I guess you could say the real first stop was the mt.vernon cafe where we devoured some authentic GW food before touring the grounds. side note: hardly anywhere in nyc serves rootbeer. its super rude.
I have to admit that the highlight of the visit for me were the farm baby animals.
baby pigs kill me. one summer while visiting my sister in UT I fell deeply in love with an all black baby pig at the county fair. the little thing slept in my arms for what felt like days. I cried when I had to go back home. {I know how you feel fern.}
ever since then my bucket list has included own a pet pig. dead serious.
I mean...
we had perfect weather and plenty of cherry blossoms
we started out day two at eastern market for some famous blue bucks
guess who was in line in front of us??? ANNA!!! oh how I miss all my london girls. it was a lovely and unexpected reunion.
love me some breakfast!
there was a bit of rain that afternoon so we drove up to gettysburg for a bus tour of the battleground. 
such a perfect weekend away, rain and all!


  1. you have such great adventures!

  2. I have always wanted to go to D.C. to see the cherry blossoms! It's on my bucket list.


thx a mill
