One of my favorite blogs is Alicia's Homemaking. I like it for a few reasons. It's written by a SAHM who was working as a full time nurse before having a child. Now she stays at home full time. Sounds vaguely familiar. Doesn't it? Every Thursday, she has a blog hop entitled "Try New Adventures Thursday." This will be my first Thursday venturing over and linking to her blog.
My in-laws were in town over the weekend and left on Tuesday. On Monday, May 30, 2011, we (my husband, mother-in-law, father-in-law, and I) decided to go see some of the memorials in Washington, D.C. A stones throw away from our apartment. I got Charis out of bed around 10:30PM shortly before going. We were able to see the WWII Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial, and the Korean War Memorial. Unfortunately, my camera battery died after the WWII Memorial, so I don't have many pictures.
It was so muggy. I would recommend that if you decide to see the monuments at night, you take bug spray and a fully charged camera battery. I also suggest trying to go when it's not so hot and humid. It was AT LEAST in the high 80s. Thankfully, Charis was a trooper. Towards the end, she started getting cranky and was only quiet if somebody was pushing her stroller.
