Memorial Day in DC

I had such a fun Memorial Day weekend! My sister came to visit from NYC for the first time since 2008 (even if she claims it was 2009) and she brought her husband Dan, plus my favorite niece and oldest nephew with her.

Some highlights included:

QT with Claire and Ben.

Beth Claire Ben

QT with my sister, of course.

Being a tourist in my own city, with trips to the National Building Museum, The American History Museum, and Iwo Jima.

And eating SO much food, including:

– Ramen at Daikaya

– Crabs at the Quarterdeck

– Dolsot Bibim bap at Mandu

– Drinks at The Gibson

– Dinner at Bar Pilar

The worst part was that weekends go too fast!

    Beth, I have been reading all your blogs for awhle now and enjoy each and every one. I looked at the pictures from Memorial Day and I must say if I didnt read the descriptions/comments I would not have recognized you. You dont know me but I am VERY proud of you. Keep on keeping us informed. I have gotten alot of information from you which really helps w/ my continued WW journey.

    I grew up in Arlington and moved when I was 12. I think I’ve seen way more of the museums and monuments now than I did when I lived there! In fact I only went to the museums on field trips. My parent’s took me to the monuments exactly once and only because we had house guests! lol

    It looks like you had a fun weekend with your sister! 🙂

    Hello Beth, thanks for this blog, the scenery are wonderful, i can relate how to sleep in the middle of the jungle, you really have to experience a strange home away from home. but the adventure educates us to be more flexible and value every little thing. “Go far as far as you can see, and there you can still see farther”. Thanks for sharing your episode, like it.
