Day 1 – first day of vacation!!!! Andy and I are in Washington D.C., to visit my sister and her family before they move to Germany next month. We almost brought the kids with us, but neither of us has been to DC and its a short trip so we are going to do some major power sight seeing. We started the morning at 415am to get to the airport on time to catch the first flight out. We are flying standby due to Andy’s generous uncle who is an employee of the airline. But with that deeply discounted ticket, comes going with the flow. Now, I can switch gears and go with the flow when needed. I’d rather have a concrete plan, but if thats not possible, I can roll. Andy, well….yeah….not so much. We got super lucky though, and got on all the flights we initially wanted to. So I touched down in 4 different states today. We’ve enjoyed a nice dinner from my all organic, natural sister (homemade pizza with fresh veggies and goat cheese, salad and smoothies with vegetables and fruits I can’t even pronounce). But don’t worry, tomorrow we’re slated to hit Georgetown Cupcakes, made famous by the show “DC Cupcakes“, among other landmarks. I’ll keep you filled in with pics throughout the weekend! Early to bed for me. Traveling zaps the energy.
