National Christmas Tree

I didn’t want to leave DC until we had at least walked by the National Christmas tree. It was still early when we got there and the lights weren’t on, so we walked around looking at all the small state trees.

We found Maryland:


My birth state, Kansas:


South Carolina, where the rest of my family now lives:


And, Zoe asked me to get a picture of Puerto Rico for her. I don’t know why.


Underneath the giant tree there were several trains running. It was pretty elaborate with all the buildings and bridges.




And, finally, the main attraction. In the second and third photo’s the tree lights are on, it’s just still to light out to tell. I wish we could have stayed longer to see it at night, but Tony was home with Harper and it was freezing, so we headed home.




As we walked back to the Metro, I saw this building and thought it was beautiful.


Unfortunately I didn’t have time to find out what it was!

Water Balloons

When my kids told me they didn't know what to do with themselves yesterday I suggested they go outside and play with the water balloons....
