Happy 2013, everybody!! I hope you had a fantastic Christmas and New Year's. I most definitely did. Why? Well let me just go ahead and tell you. This year, Kennedy and I traveled to Bali to spend the holidays with my brother, his wife and kids, and our mom. Sounds amazing, right? You'd be correct, although that's putting it mildly. It was far more incredible than I could have ever imagined.
Here is a picture so you can have a small taste of it.
Mmm. Doesn't that taste good? Just you wait until I give you more. Holy crapoli, those two weeks were transcendental. But more on that, later.
Hopefully sooner than later.
For now, I am very determined to finish my documentation of my East Coast trip. I only have 2 more posts to go. I could combine them into one, but that would probably overwhelm you with too much awesomeness. So instead, here is number one. Numero dos will be coming in a few days.
Casey's aunt, who lives in McLean, VA (very close to DC), was gracious enough to let us stay at her house for a few nights. We spent 2 full days in DC, yet we still felt like we hardly saw any of it. I took a gazillion pictures. And then a few more. To save on blogging time and space (and to make it less boring for you), I will keep my captions short and succinct. You're welcome.
Arlington cemetery. Beautiful.
Tomb of the unknown soldier. Sobering.
WWII Vets. Emotional. (We were lucky enough to witness a tribute ceremony to these WWII vets. Pretty cool.)
Cat in a sink. Adorbs.
Crooked lamppost. Mildly amusing.
Lincoln Memorial. Grand.
Bright vermilion autumn tree. Stunning.
The capital building. Under construction.
Our home states! Adorkable.
Natural History Museum. Mmm. Bronze fish.
Washington Monument. Tall. (That's Casey's cute mom standing next to me.)
Vietnam Memorial. Beautiful.
The view. Amazing.
White House. Smaller than I had expected.
DC Cupcakes. Yummmmmm. (This is actually in Georgetown, DC. A very quaint and charming little area.)
See? Short and succinct.
Next up (and last up for this trip), a day in the Big Apple.
