Washington DC, Georgetown
On our last morning in town, we met up with my sister and an old friend from our home ward for breakfast in Georgetown. It was cold and rainy that day. If I was looking for fall, I sure found it. Of course our desert blood froze. :)
But oh man, Georgetown is cute! I would love to visit again someday and explore it a little more.
Top on Mabel's list was visiting Georgetown Cupcake. We took a half dozen back to our hotel room and declared them delicious.
Also in this part of town is the Old Stone House. It's the oldest home in the district. It only takes a few minutes to peek into its rooms, but I loved it. I love old houses like this. I like the way they smell, and the creaks in the floors. Plus it was a good place to step out of the rain for a bit.
The gardens were lush and rain soaked and so pretty.
Here's what I learned about Washington DC: Four and a half days of sightseeing isn't enough! There were lots of places we just didn't have the time to see, and that makes me sad. Also, I think everyone should visit at some point in their life. There is so much history, and so much appreciation to be gained for the inspired beginning of this country.
It was exhausting and non-stop, and my feet still haven't recovered from all the walking we did, but it was wonderful! We'll have to go back when our younger kids are a little older. I thought Mabel was just the right age for it.
