On Our Way

It’s another big week for our family. This morning, we have loaded up the car for a little roadtrip and we are off on a summer adventure. In celebration of Pete’s graduation, we are spending the week in our nation’s capital, Washington DC.


I haven’t been to DC since I was very young. We have plans to visit all the major sites, which will keep us quite busy, as you can imagine. There’s the monuments to visit, as well as the Library of Congress, the Senate and House buildings, the Capital. I believe the White House is currently closed to visitors right now, so we’ll miss that. But then of course there is the Smithsonian. And Arlington. And probably a hundred other places, as well.

I shall miss you while I’m away. I know I haven’t had the chance to keep up with you all as much as I would like these past few weeks. Just busy, busy right now. After DC comes Peter’s college orientation, which will have me running off again…….but then things will slow down for awhile. And in the mean time, I have some fun projects scheduled to share with you the rest of the week. So I hope you enjoy, and I hope you all have a fabulous week, my friends!

  1. Have a fantastic trip, Audrey! I’ve only been to D.C. once and just for the day. You definitely need more than one day to enjoy the city. I hope to go back some day. 🙂

  2. Have a great time!!!!!!! When you are in DC – look up: Goodies Frozen Custard and Treats. It’s a food truck – and Brandon the owner is the SWEETEST guy out there and his ‘goodies’ are delicious. He moves around daily – so if you can access him via Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/mmmgoodies – he’ll post where he is. It is WELL worth it and he is such a cutie pie too!!!!!!!!!!

  3. How exciting! I bet I could spend the whole week in the Smithsonian. 🙂 Hope you have a wonderful trip Audrey. Take lots of pics! Hugs!

  4. Hi Audrey! Have a WONDERFUL time with your family! What a great thing to do together. I went to DC for the first time two years ago and it was so awesome. Can’t wait to hear all about your trip! (And I know an amazing scrapbook is sure to follow!) Bon Voyage! XO

  5. Wishing you a great time in DC! We’ve been there twice and thoroughly enjoyed the nation’s capital! Take care and enjoy!

  6. I am SO excited for you!!

    Years ago, I chaperoned my elder daughter’s class trip to DC and New York — and it was a FABULOUS experience!! Wish that we could have spent DAYS in the Smithsonian instead of just a few hours…sigh.

    The White House tour was SO limited — it was actually my least-favorite destination. Really enjoyed our visit to George Washington’s Mt. Vernon Estate, however! (I bought a little earthenware crock in the gift shop.)

    A little funny…through a terrible misunderstanding, I was nearly ARRESTED at the Capitol Building — EEEK!!! And, as a gesture of consolation, I was escorted to the chair of the Speaker of the House and allowed to take a seat. (The honor of it all was a weeee bit lost on me, at the time — ha!!)

    I’ll look forward to reading of YOUR DC adventures!!! ((HUGS))
