Then we got to breakfast and Pam's sunglasses broke! AHHH!
This next picture is out of order...but we were riding the Metro to meet up with everyone...
We ate breakfast at this DELICIOUS French bakery...it was SO GOOD!
We ordered their organic bread sampler and this basket came out that looked straight from the New Testament. Ryan dubbed it the "Jesus Feeds the 5000 Miracle Basket!" HA!
We walked by the White House!
One of the reasons we went this particular weekend was that it was the Cherry Blossom Festival and it was GORGEOUS! There was HUGE parade and it was really crowded, but SO BEAUTIFUL!
We didn't really sit to watch the parade but we were walking alongside it to get to a museum. All of a sudden we saw AARON CARTER...HAHA! He was singing away in the parade...hilarious!
We went to the Holocaust Museum, but didn't take any pictures. (I don't think you are allowed). I had been before, but Ryan hadn't. If you've been before, then you know it is an incredible museum. Very sad, but very important to see.
Everyone else went back to relax for awhile before supper, so Ryan and I headed to meet up with some of our good friends from college who live in DC! Catey and I (and Lauren) were roommates our last two years at Mizzou, and it was SO GOOD to see her and Ben and little Cooper! We ate at some local hot dog place and it was so yummy! Then they drove us through some really cool neighborhoods where they used to live near Capitol Hill, and they dropped us off at Union Station so we could catch the Metro back.
For dinner, we headed to this Korean BBQ place that Kyle and Lance picked. It was...INTERESTING. HA! I thought it was going to be similar to a Hibachi Grill, but it was way more authentic. Sarah and I ordered chicken and steak, but the boys got all these crazy things like octopus, intestine, etc. GROSS!
|I know the picture is blurry, but notice the big ole' octopus in the middle/bottom! AHHH!|
They had some crazy LOUD music pumping...Sarah and I were having a BLAST watching some Korean music videos! And this lady kept coming over to cook the intestine...she was a pro! And then she kept trying to get me to eat it...NO WAY!
The boys wanted us to try the intestine and octopus...NOPE!
|Intestine anyone? |
And good ole' Rick always takes it so well...
