DC Day 4

On our last day in DC, daddy work up super early to go for a long run around the Mall and the National Monuments. He's training for a 10K. He took this picture of the sunrise during his run.

After he got back, I was up and ready for the day. Since it was Sunday, nothing was open around the apartment so we ended up having breakfast at McDonald's around the corner. After breakfast, daddy thought he would let mommy go back to rest and pack, so he took me back to the monuments to run around for a couple of hours.

Back at the monument again? Yay!

When daddy and I got back to the apartment, Aunty Linda and Uncle Dan were up, so we headed out to dim sum at Silver Fountain Restaurant in Silver Springs, Maryland. It was a bit of a drive, and I took a little nap in the car. Boy, it was worth the drive for the dim sum though. I had fun watching the ladies pushing the dim sum cart around while the adults stuffed their faces.

After lunch, we went out to the Arlington Cemetery. It was a hot day, so we decided to take the Tourmobile bus. We visited the burial site of JFK, RFK, Oliver Wendall Holmes, Jr. and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers.

Oooh. Cool breeze from daddy's blowing on me.

Afterward, we went back to the apartment to rest for a couple of hours before heading out to dinner at Five Guys and Thomas Sweet Ice Cream for their famous bittersweet chocolate ice cream. I couldn't resist the urge to try some.

Hmm... bittersweet.

With our bellies full, Uncle Dan and Aunty Linda dropped us off at the airport. We had such a fun visit and we hope we'll see them again soon. Next time, I'll get to play with Emma!
