Walking the Dogs on the National Mall

I know it's kind of random, but one thing that has been on my life list since we moved to the East Coast was to walk our dogs on the National Mall in Washington D.C. I don't know why - I just thought it was such a cool idea. It's like how I really want to take Ava to New York City or Paris - I just think it's fitting somehow.

You would think we would have had plenty of opportunity to take the dogs to D.C. since we lived in MD for a year, but we never drove down to the city - we always took the Metro. And dogs are not allowed on the Metro. So, I got to check the National Mall off my list this weekend.

It was so much fun! And Stuart got some great "family" shots.

And then I wanted to have my picture taken with Stuart, and he posed like this. haha

It was such a great experience and a fantastic evening for a walk. Loved every minute of it. It's funny - when we were thinking of moving out here, I totally veto'd D.C. I thought it was dirty and crime-filled and I didn't want to live there. But this is such a beautiful city with so much to offer and I loved every minute we spent walking around and being in the midst off all that history. I love sitting on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and knowing many important people with important messages have stood right there - history was changed right where I sit. It's a very cool feeling. I'll definitely miss it.
