H54F: Weekday Exploring

H54F: Weekday Exploring

1. Momument Tours
Yesterday I spent the early afternoon visiting some more of the monuments. It was a rainy, slightly chilly day, so there weren’t many people around. Which was absolutely perfect. I was able to make it to the Korean War Veterans Memorial, the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, The FDR Memorial and the Jefferson Memorial. The rain held off for me and I was able to get back home without getting drenched.9 2 3

2. United States Postal Museum
Earlier in the week I decided to go through the United States Postal Museum. I didn’t really think it was something that would interest me, but it was actually pretty entertaining.

3. Dinner together
Ivan’s schedule has been fairly regular this week, so we’ve been able to eat dinner together. We went out on Tuesday to a place down the street and had these incredible tacos… it’s one of my new favorite restaurants.

4. Tour De Fat
Last Saturday we headed down to Yards Park and hung out for Tour De Fat. I hadn’t heard about it before that day, so I didn’t really know what to expect. If it’s coming to a city near you, I’d recommend it. There was a lot going on and things were reasonably priced. No cover charge and $5 for a beer.1

5. Vistiors!
My parents finalized their plans to come visit. They’ll be here June 11th-16th, so I’m trying to hold off doing some of the things they’ll want to do. I also managed to get a time slot for us to tour the Capitol, so that’s exciting.

Books I Read:
Ruby Red by Kierstin Gier 

Today I am linking up with:
Tif at Bright on a Budget for High Five For Friday
The Farmer’s Wife for Oh, Hey Friday!
Fitting It All In for Five Things

  • Don’t you just love it when your schedules match up? Ours haven’t matched up at all this week and this morning as I was leaving for work, I was thinking how excited I am that today’s Friday and we can hopefully get on the same page this weekend/next week. It looks like you explored some great places. I was in DC as a high school sophomore and you’re making me really want to go back!

  • Tour de Fat sounds so fun! Hope it comes close to me :)

    • I’d never heard of it before. I didn’t even realize it was an actual “tour”. I thought it was just a beerfest :)
