Day 2 in DC

So we started this morning waking up early. Within minutes of coming upstairs, saying we were ready, we had downed some cereal with freshly made almond milk, compliments of Traci, the sis. She had packed Andy and I a lunch. We printed out a Metro map and jumped into my brother in law, Rob’s vehicle and he dropped us at the nearest Metro station and said have fun. So Metro cards and map in hand, Andy and I tried our best to blend in with the morning commuters. Which wasn’t hard. You could hear a pin drop on the metro. No one said a word and they did 1 of three things, sleep, read the paper or a book, listen to music, or stare straight ahead. Oh, that’s 4 things. So they did one of 4 things. We started off our morning at Union Station. I loved this place!! After browsing the Barns and Noble there, we had coffee and some breakfast in a cafe and people watched while we discussed what to do with our morning. We stayed there an hour or so and then headed back onto the Metro to find our way to DC cupcakes. We mapped out a stop that was closest to Georgetown and started walking. We crossed the Potomac river by way of walking across a big bridge to the cutest college town ever. This is a pic of Georgetown

There were runners galore, and the flowers around were beautiful. We were dying to go for a run. Perfect weather – around 63 with a slight breeze. Andy with some tulips.

We ended up here!!! At Georgetown Cupcakes (a.k.a. DC Cupcakes, where the TLC show is filmed). I was giddy.

Me, standing in the line. It was only 30 minutes, so not too bad!!

One of the workers was gracious to flash me a smile while I took a pic. That’s where they are assembling every one’s orders

After we walked the town and perused some shops, we packed our cupcakes back down to the river to eat, along with the lunch Traci packed.

My cupcake, the hummingbird. Banana cake with pecans and a banana cream cheese frosting sprinkled with pecans and a blue fondant humming bird.

So. stinking. good.

Andy with his chocolate hazelnut cupcake. It was good, but not as good as my hummingbird!!

Some of the cherry blossoms! They were still blooming!!!

After lunch we metroed back to a station where my sis picked me up, after she had picked up our dad at the airport who is joining in on the weekend fun!!! Now Rob is cooking up some burgers on the deck, Andy is sleeping, and I’m going to go sit in the hammock.

Till tomorrow…..
