We left on Thursday, April 4th so that we could spend some time vacationing in DC. Out first stop was at Fed Ex Field since my friend and her little one are huge Redskins fans. I am not a football fan at all. But I had to go to the bathroom something fierce so I got to pee in Redskins territory. The gift shop was big and my friends were in their glory!

Friday we headed back into Georgetown and these--
We stopped in at Lush because that was on my list of spaces to shop. There were a couple things I wanted and figured I'd save myself a shipping charge by going to the store directly. The person who waited on us was a bit over the top. To the point of being annoying. I picked up what I had wanted and we got out of there.
We went into a few more stores and then into Sprinkles Cupcakes. We were on a Cupcake Crawl!! I knew of Sprinkles (I watch Cupcake Wars!) but had never had one. They had a cinnamon cupcake and cinnamon is my favorite so I had to get it!

We stopped in the Old Stone House which is supposed to be the oldest house in DC. We got stamps in our National Parks Passport Book.
After a visit through the house we stopped at Pinkberry! Another place I had heard of but had never been to. If you are keeoing track so far I have eaten two cupcakes and frozen yogurt. No real food at all! Ah, the joys of being on vacation!
We headed back over the bridge named after Francis Scott Key and dropped off our stuff at the hotel. Then we went to the Metro to go into DC. We headed for the Expo to pick up our packets and check out the expo. Didn't buy too much there. This was actually my first expo and it was a little overwhelming. We bought patches, bandanas and head scarves. We got some samples of chips, granola, and Lara Bars!
After we left there we were on a mission to find Cherry Blossom margaritas! We had stopped at many places along our travels and no one seemed to have them! We ended up in a restaurant in Chinatown. Since it was Friday night the place was packed and NOISY! The restaurant was upstairs but the bar was downstairs so we sat in the bar and had a drink. I don't know how people go out drinking in DC! Two drinks and a soda came to over $30!!
We didn't hang around because Chinatown was just a scary place to be! So, it was back to the hotel where we ordered pizza for dinner. And, of course, cupcakes!! That is the end of our second day in DC!
