Nick and I spent Saturday evening walking around DC. I love the city at Christmas-it’s so festive! Last year we saw the National Tree at the White House, but this year we visited the “People’s Tree” at the Capitol.
We parked at the Lincoln Mall and walked to the Capitol. It doesn’t seem far away when you look at a map, but it’s more than two miles each way. The reflecting pool doesn’t even have water right now because they are working on it and half of the grass on the Mall is blocked off, so the walk wasn’t as pretty as normal. But I love seeing the monuments lit up at night.
Obviously we went with another picture!
We brought Roxie along since we were outside the entire time. The city is very animal friendly, but you can’t take pets up to certain memorials/monuments.
Merry Christmas from DC!
