DC Adventure, again



Tickets for a “tall bus” as ordered by Butterfly were on the agenda today.  They were graciously given to us by a friend who had no use for them.  We took friends along!  Butterfly got to climb the stairs in the bus and was beyond thrilled!

Happy Butterfly

There was a lot of this:

Green Statue in DC

and this:

DC street

and I saw a lot of DC I’ve never seen before.

Including one neighborhood in Georgetown where the bus broke down and we had to wait an hour for another.  We got to know that street really well. Also, my head got to know a very sharp branch at one point. Ouch!

After that neighborhood there was a lot of this:

Tired Boys on Double Decker Bus in DC

And once we got home (around 6:30 pm…sorry Lolli!) there was a lot of ice cream and beds.


PS- Happily linked to Lolli (who shared this adventure and took better pictures I’m sure because she did not have 2 toddlers in her lap and who let us use her teenager who has a good heart) and Lolli’s Give Me Your Best Shot.

    LOL I can totally relate to trying to get pictures with toddlers. My two youngest are 18 mo apart and they’re a handful! My 4th of July pictures turned out better than I thought (since the boys were screaming in terror the whole fireworks show).
    An unexpected day out with the kids is always fun……..and they sleep good later!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    What’s most important is the memories and the company you had, which both sound great. Thanks for sharing a bit of Dc with those of us who have only seen it on TV .

    Minus the breakdown, it sure seems like it was an awesome time.
