A Little Getaway

The husband and I decided to head to DC for the weekend and do a little Smithsonian touring.
After my double gym classes, grocery shopping, and him finishing up at the office we threw our bags in the car yesterday afternoon and made the drive up to DC.
We got up this morning and took the metro into The National Mall and took in a couple of museums. We started off at the American History Museum. Hello Ruby Red Slippers and Archie Bunker’s chair.
We checked out all of the exhibits but, of course I was there for those Ruby Red Slippers.
After checking out he exhibits at the American History Museum we headed next door to the Natural Museum of History. Here we saw dinosaurs and the Hope Diamond. Yeah, I’m trying to figure out how to get that on my neck.
After we saw all we wanted to see at the Museum of Natural History it was off to the Smithsonian Castle, so that we could say hey we went in the castle.
It was a full day of site seeing and tomorrow we will go back for more.
And, well I’m getting lots of walking in so at least I’m still being active and I’ve been doing well on selecting healthy food options while eating out for every meal. It’s been a great day.
