Scott’s Day in D.C.

A few weeks ago Scott and I traveled to Washington D.C. for one of my events. Fourteen-plus hours in the truck is a lot more enjoyable when you have someone with you … especially when you are big-mama pregnant.

We stayed on the outskirts of D.C. since my event was on the Potomac River.01-IMG_2256

On one of my busier days, Scott decided to spend the entire day in D.C. rather than hang around the hotel room waiting on me. He planned on getting to D.C. early to beat the heat and see all the monuments before heading to the Air and Space Museum.

Scott could probably give you waaaay too many details about his time in the museum, but here are some highlights:

Apollo 11 command module:

Lots of airplanes:

The plane that Amelia Earhart flew across the Atlantic and also across the United States:

And finally, a Japanese Zero:

Also, any trip whatsoever is never complete without a beer at a local brewery! Scott stopped in for lunch at BlueJacket. Living the dream, I tell ya. We’ll have to make another stop there once I can partake again!

The Washington Nationals were playing that day at 4, so Scott made sure he was there for batting practice. I had called and talked to him and he said, “I was like the 10th person in the gate.” Haha! Unfortunately, the game they played the night before went a crazy amount of innings and didn’t get over until well past midnight. Needless to say … they weren’t having BP.

Being the heat of the day with the game not starting for another few hours resulted in this:

Overall he had a great time!

The next night we decided to head over to National Harbor for a little date night. We’ve actually held events here a couple different times and it’s a fun place that features lots of great restaurants, boutique shops and live music and entertainment.

We had dinner at the Walrus Oyster and Ale House and it was pretty delicious!

Overall it was a great trip. We love visiting D.C. but we could do without the traffic. Yikesorama bahamamama! It’s one of those things you always know will be bad, but you are wishful in that it won’t. Haha!! Cheers to next time, D.C.!

  1. Scott, your pictures of DC are really amazing! Looks like you made good use of your day. The pictures from “date night” look like lots of fun.

  2. What fun you two are having. The Lincoln monument looks great. When we were there a couple years ago it was all torn up and being renovated and there were detours everywhere. I wanted to see the Holocaust Museum but we ran out of time. So much to see and so little time. Glad you had a great time.
