I'll tell ya.
I'm hanging out in a hotel in Alexandria, VA anxiously awaiting the Cherry Blossom parade and festival tomorrow in DC!
You want to know something sad? This is the first trip like this (spontaneous, staying in a hotel, etc) that we've done with Lorelai. She is 27 months old. But we're not as big of losers as it sounds. All of 2008, when we were in San Antonio, JD didn't have any time off to do anything fun like this. I guess the year before that we don't really have an excuse. But, whatever.
This is so much fun. Lorelai will get to ride the metro tomorrow and I'm sure that's going to be her favorite! Currently, she is standing three inches from the plasma television getting what must be a great education, seeing as how she's mesmerized. And drooling.
This was a rather spontaneous trip for us. We had talked about it for the last week, but really hadn't decided if we were going to go. Until today. Thankfully, Laura stepped up and saved my dog from an untimely death. I mean....she's watching him while we're away. If you're an animal freak, don't worry.....it's a joke.
So, hopefully I'll have a ton of pictures tomorrow to share with y'all.
Until then, here's JD and Lorelai walking down the street in Old Town Alexandria, before we ate at Hard Times.
I'm pretty sure Lorelai saw a ghost. Or a butterfly...the reaction is the same.
