So!!! My family and I went on a road trip to Washington, D.C. recently to visit some family. I hadn’t been down in a few years and I haven’t taken a proper vacation in years.
I don’t even want to talk about how much coffee I had during this vacation.
Compulsory Starbucks bathroom selfie! Why am I wearing a flower crown on a road trip? I don’t know.
Obviously cats are the most important part of any vacation, so here’s a handsome one.
We went to the National Zoo! This was the Amazonia exhibit, which was really cool because the animals weren’t fenced in! They were all around us.
I went to Duck Donuts for the first time… and the second… and the third. They’re fresh, made-to-order donuts with whatever toppings you want!
This is Cat #2! He’s an angel and my baby and I love him. His name is Malbec. 💕
I got liquid nitrogen ice cream for the first time and it was so cool???????

We went to a Nats game and their park is STUPENDOUS, but their mascots are a little creepy. This is my mom and I with Teddy. I also met Screech in an elevator, but didn’t get a picture!
My final picture: me and Lincoln (my second picture with him–I got one at Nats park too!). This was taken at Gettysburg on our way home.
All-in-all it was a great vacation! It was so lovely spending time with family I don’t get to see often and it was nice to see a different part of the country for a bit. I don’t travel nearly as much as I’d like to, but I’m hoping to do a bit more starting next year!
