DC Food 2013

Homemade pop tarts from Ted's Bulletin. These were so good I bought a bunch back to Mississippi with me. So sad they're gone.

With the invention of Instagram, I’m pretty certain most of the world became annoyed with people posting photos of their dinners, but we had some wonderful food (homemade and out and about) in D.C. and I couldn’t resist. Luckily having a baby cut into overindulging in all photography especially food photography, so here’s only a small sampling of what we ate during our last trip.

Puzzling out the American Indian museum

Though Ennis isn’t quite ready to put together a puzzle, he enjoyed taking this one apart at the National Museum of the American Indian.

After sorting seats by price, we found some great $11 tickets that we easily printed. Even with the $5 service fee and $4.95 delivery fee, the four of us only paid $13.49 a piece, a great price for a fun evening out.

D.C. highlights in photos

Yep, that’s the White House, and unlike my first trip to D.C. we actually toured it this time. Though no cameras were allowed on that tour, I did get several photos of us visiting the monuments, memorials, and important buildings before we went home.

dogs at the national zoo

If you let Ennis tell you, he’d say the National Zoo in D.C. was filled with dogs.

That’s the benefit of a 4 word vocabulary, all animals become dogs.
