Ashley Goes to D.C. Part 1

My boyfriend, Rob, and I went to DC for the 4th of July weekend! We stayed with a good friend of Rob’s from college and his wife. They were the best hosts and tour guides! We had a great time thanks to them! Okay, get ready for picture overload.

Day 1: Thursday, July 2

Got this photo of our flight in. So pretty

We got into D. C. about 9:00 their time (very early flight!) so we had a full day to sight see! We went straight to Capitol Hill. 

Love these buildings!

Library of Congress.

Supreme Court Building. 

The Capitol dome during reconstruction.

Had to make a pit stop to eat. Wonderful hot dogs and corn dogs at DC-3. I forgot to take pics of our food before scarfed it down. 

Have to have dessert. Great doughnuts at District Doughnut!

Yummy Strawberry!


We drove into Alexandria, Virginia for dinner. We ate at a lovely Italian place that Cody and Tori, our hosts, eat at quite a bit called Rosemarino d’ Italia. It was great! Loved the atmosphere of this town!

Yummy Chicken Carbonara

Fantastic spaghetti and meatballs

Day 2: Friday, July 3

We drove to Annapolis, Maryland. It was absolutely beautiful! Would love to live there!

View from the World War II memorial.

So festive for the 4th!

Great view of the Chesapeake Bay.

We also checked out the Navy base.

Got an up close view of these naval students in action.

Beautiful buildings.

Had to have dessert again after eating at Armadillo’s! Milkshakes!

Loved walking down these side streets.

Had to snap a picture of this adorable pink town home!

We drove back into D.C for dinner at Bonchon which is located in the Navy Yard. Talk about big chicken wings! These things were tasty!

We had a wonderful first two days! Check back in tomorrow for part two of the trip!
