Washington DC

We just got back last night from our final installment of our summer of fun. We visited Washington DC (Franz's first time) and Charlottesville for my friend Jess Mantooth's wedding!! It was an amazing trip, and Isabel was a very patient and happy traveler - making her parents often forget she is only 2 years old (almost). Here are some highlights.

Pre-trip, but just had to put it in b/c she is so cute!

Subway time.

Visiting the White House our first night...

...and the Washington Monument.

WWII Memorial on a beautiful but hot and humid day.

Lincoln Memorial

Isabel was most excited about the board books in the library by the monument.

Heading down the many stairs...

The new Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial

Nice view on the walk to the Jefferson Monument

Franz with Jefferson.

Yeah, I just ate a cupcake, so what?

Hanging out in the hotel.

Ford's Theater

Isabel's favorite place - the National Aquarium.

Finding fishies

Cute father and daughter at Georgetown.

Isabel trying to show us where to go on the map.

Arlington Cemetery.

Trolley tour on the last day to relieve our tired feet!

Izzie relaxing on the Trolley

Charlottesville - our only pic from Monticello, which was so fun to see!

Walking along the downtown mall in Charlottesville.

Relaxing in the stroller.

She loved this old fashioned merry-go-round...she would not let us take her off!

University of Virginia at the Rotunda

Enjoying the grounds

We had a great time at the wedding - a very classy and memorable event!

Carissa and Jess, the beautiful bride (with some cake of course!)

It was so fun to see Alli (and Mike).

Jess had to meet Izzie even in her busy morning after the wedding.

Isabel trying to get mom out of her picture.

Delayed plane made it into a 6 hour ride - but a little satellite tv did help some.

Now back to real life!! :(
