The Nation's Capital

Back in October Dalyn had to attend a conference in Washington, DC. Originally, I hadn't planned on going because I was working but when I got fired I jumped on the opportunity for a free trip. Because Dalyn was already going our hotel was covered, so basically all we had to pay for was mine and the babies food. It ended up working out perfectly because Dalyn really only had to be at the conference for a day and half. So we spent the rest of the time roaming around, exploring the city. Neither of us had ever been and it was neat to take our babies for the first time.

Dalyn had to go to conference that afternoon but we had all morning, so we decided to drive into the city and take the kids to the National Zoo. The amazing thing, if you've never been, is that it's free. The kiddos are sooooo into animals right now and they loved it. They especially love Elephants and we really lucked up because the moment we walked in we went straight to the elephants and they were doing a show. The kids were so amazed and happy and we could've probably left at that moment and they would've been happy. Here are a few pics from our day. . . .

We packed a lunch and headed in to the city on the subway for a day of exploring. The kids were such troppers. They rode in their stroller great all day, ate great and even napped great in their stroller. It made for a much more enjoyable day for us and them! Here are some pics of the sights we seen that day.

We had a wonderful time in DC, I can't wait to take the babies back in the future when they can understand a little more about everything. I highly recommend going, if you haven't ever been. There are so many things to do and see. And a large number of them are FREE! I could have seriously spent two whole days just shopping! haha
