This is the train I took to get there. (Well ... I did take a train. Loved it).
This is Megan, Wendy, me and Jamie. We all lived in the same place our freshman year and part of sophmore year (until I moved) at BYU. It was really fun to get together and hear about what everyone was up to. It made me remember how awesome those girls are. Oh ... somehow I have a knack for finding free frozen yogurt, even in foreign cities.
My face ... I don't know how to say cheese. But we went to dinner at a chic pizza place. 2$ per bite of tortellini.
While Wendy was in class I spent my days roving the art galleries of DC. She texted me when she finished the first day to ask where I was. At that point I had been lost inside the National Gallery for a couple hours already so I replied that I thought I was at the Louvre. I even had to go back the next day, and I still never made it to the east building. Anyway, I loved it. This spider-thing is outside the Hirshhorn. I really wanted Kimber to be at this one with me. I think she would have had some comments to make it even better.
When I found art that I thought Tyler might appreciate I wanted to show it to him in hopes that someday he would go to an art museum with me and not feel like he is being punished. Ironically, another form of art we found was in the form of an NBA game. I don't think he would mind me dragging him to one of those. This is Wendy, me, and her new roommates Kristen and Carolyn (sp?). Oh, and they all are student teacing and get to live in a sweet pent-house in Crystal City. Does that not sound awesome? By the way, the wizards are not very good.
We also went to a free concert one night at the Kennedy Center. It was pretty awesome. We decided that this was the black version of Wendy's boyfriend. Cute, right?
Last, but not least, I will shame myself for a moment. I was really worn out by the end of one day and I was walking toward the Library of Congress when I noticed I could go in this greenhouse-y building. Turns out it was like my most favorite national museum ever. I think I took 70 pictures of cool flowers and 5 of my friends the entire trip. Another point to add to my shame is that I have spent a few days away from Tyler twice in our whole year of marriage. To Wendy's credit, they were both to see her. I had fun both times, but I really missed the little guy. To anyone who has seen or read The Golden Compass, I describe it as having my soul cut off. Its like I'm only half me when he isn't around. Sweet, huh? Well ... It has been a wonderful year even if I go on fun trips without him sometimes. And that was the synopsis of my really busy, but really fun trip to DC.
