Bradley and I had a great time in Washington DC for our 1 year anniversary. We visited the Holocaust museum, the Natural History Museum, the Air and Space Museum, the Bureau of Engraving, the White House, and the Capital. We went to several monuments on two of the nights. For the most part we stayed on the mall, except for a visit to the zoo. The weather was perfect and our hotel was nice, so the trip overall was a success. For both of us, this was the first vacation we had ever planned where our itenerary was not given to us. We picked all the places and times for ourselves.
We also started a new tradition on this trip. I have never known what to do with kitschy vacation souvenirs, so we have decided to bring home a Christmas ornament from each trip we take so that it serves a specific purpose and we can take a trip down memory lane every year as we put up our tree.
