A much needed break…

CATEGORIES: Allyson Portraits, Portraits

Dan and I visited Washington DC for vacation, to be tourists and visit a few of my cousins.  Good times!  We’d never been to DC, not even on one of those school trips, so we thought it would be fun.  It was, so much to see, and do.  Here are a few shots.  So many more, but I don’t have that much time to post them all!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, I admit, I’ve gotten behind and then it feels overwhelming! but there are some super fun posts coming up, so stay tuned and thanks for visiting!


Jefferson Memorial was my favorite of the Memorials…it was so peaceful over there.

I guess the guy who lives in this tent has been living there for like 30 years!  He lives about 25 feet from the White House lawn – government subsidized living at it’s finest!

Arlington Cemetary – one place I wish we could have visited longer, but it was pooring rain, our umbrella broke, we were soaked, it was Beautiful, with a capital B!
