Mini trip to Washington D.C

Our 7 year anniversary is next week! We decided to take a early anniversary trip as a family. We had many friends tell us that they loved Washington trips with their families. So we decided to check it out! 

A 8 hour drive for us. We left Thursday night, drove 4 hours and stayed at a hotel in Pennsylvania to rest that night. 

Little k was already enjoying his adventure. He is such a good traveller. 

The next morning we woke up early, had breakfast and headed back on the road. 

What a view! 

We arrived in Washington Friday afternoon. We stayed at the Embassy Suites. We booked a 2 room suite so we had a bedroom and living room which was great. 

As soon as we got there, we dropped off our luggage, freshened up and headed out! 

The next 8 hours we just walked and walked. Ha!

There is soooooo much to do in Washington. 2 days is soo not enough. 

See pics below! 

First evening we walked through China town and had dinner and then kept on walking! 

We walked to Captial Hill, Washington monument, Lincoln memorial and reflecting pool. 
Little k was sleeping through the first part of our walk.

Smoothie from a food truck... Let me tell you, there are sooooo many food trucks there at National Mall, pretty much everything you can think of, it's probably there. 
Mr woke up at the right time, he threw a coin and made a wish ;)

Reflecting pool, beautiful. 

Washington monument.

Lincoln memorial 

The next day we continued our walk. Our hotel Ebassy Suites had an awesome breakfast included. It was perfect to fill us up before we headed out to see the White House and national air and space museum...

I thought the White House was bigger than what it was. Not much to see from the outside anyway but now we can say we have been there! Haha.

Little k was such a good sport, he had a few toddler moments but overall he was a great sport sightseeing! 

The best part of the weekend for Kristian was the National air and space museum! He was sooo excited. He is still talking about it. 

That evening as we walked to dinner, little k fell asleep. And was out the whole dinner ha!

So we labelled it as our quiet anniversary dinner haha. 

When little K woke up we hopped on the trolly tour. 

We had a nice evening and nice walk at night. 

The next day we had breakfast and went to see a few more things before leaving. 
(Tank top H&M, tights Aritzia, vest GUESS, shoes Converse) 

Since little K is obsessed with airplanes we had to stop at Gravelly Point Park to watch the planes land. He loved it!!! 

We drove around Washington for about an hour sightseeing a bit more from the car. Then headed back home! 

There was sooo much more I wanted to see and do in Washington. 2 days just wasn't enough. We will definitely be back again.
