Leisurely Day on the Mall

We just got back from a great trip to the Bethesda and Washington, DC. My sister and her husband are moving from DC (after 5 years) and we wanted to get one last trip in. We did the Air and Space Museum, the National Gallery of Art East Wing, GOT A SNOW CONE, the Museum of Natural History and a CAROUSEL RIDE — all in one day. I’m going to try to squeeze more in next time.

Trixie also got recognized in an art gallery in Bethesda Friday night. That doesn’t happen a lot, so it was pretty cool. (Thanks so much for saying “hi”! The recommendation for eating at the East Wing Concourse was great!)

Trixie had a great time. Look forward to going back sometime. (this was Trixie’s third trip. She visited at age one and age two)

There’s a bunch of pics up on flickr.

    Hey, Trixie’s back! Excellent news! Also, very cool that Trixie’s getting recognized in public. Soon enough the papparazzi will be tailing you in the streets…

    I was wondering if you guys ever call Trixie, Beatrix? Or is it always Trixie? Beatrix is such a cool name.

    Very occasionally I call her Beatrix. Usually we trim her name even more — to “Trix”.
