This weekend I took the baby downtown to see the National Christmas tree. Did I mention how much I love this city? Every time I roam around the national mall and act like a tourist I find something different and this weekend was no exception. I could sit here and type about it but I took a bunch of pictures so here are some.
National Christmas Tree
National Christmas Tree and The Capitol
Ulysses S Grant memorial overlooking Washington monument. This is the view from the capitol lawn
Lady carrying an umbrella, this threw me off because it wasn't raining/snowing and there was no sun to shade so I don't know why she needed the umbrella
Construction at the capitol for the Inauguration
Random columned building. All the buildings have some kind of columns.
J Edgar Hoover FBI Building, celebrating 100 years!!
Some War Memorial, I liked the torch.
Ok so now imagine your 4 years old, your cold but still running around having fun chasing squirrels when you look over and see this
A bunch of Santa's and Santa's helpers leaving the Washington monument
So your chillin when 200 Santa's walk directly past you saying "merry Christmas and giving away candy and toys.
It looked something like this
The gift haul after the Santa's left.
Christmas tree in front of the white house
I was surrounded by 53 little trees, 1 from each state and territory
The Obama's future residence
Another random columned building
A random Christmas tree
And after seeing all that I had to go home and put up my tree, I know it's blurry but I couldn't get a clear pic. Merry Christmas!!!
