Afternoon in D.C.
Nov. 28th. 2015 – Today, we decided to take a last minute outing to DC. We heard about a place called City Center and thought it would be a good place to check out since we have a couple out of town guests here for Thanksgiving (my mom-in-law who came down from NYC and cousin from Germany). We met up near Chinatown and walked through the Center. The name “City Center” sounds so grand but it’s much smaller than I thought, but cute nevertheless. It’s a block or two of high end stores on the bottom level of new apartments and offices. Rumi enjoyed the water installation and huge reindeer which is sculpted out of twigs!
The museum shop had the most beautiful peacock Christmas tree displayed. I love holiday decor – it makes me feel happy!
The twins didn’t enjoy the the old man paintings on the walls at the portrait museum – they cried upon seeing them- but they had a great time prancing through the water feature in the cafe. Thankfully, I brought a change of clothes!
After the museum, we grabbed a cup of coffee, walked around a bit and then headed home. It was unusually warm in DC so it was a perfect day to enjoy the city!
