Day 1 sightseeing in Virginia

Posted in Uncategorized by sandy on the May 16th, 2010

So, we had only intended on dropping Peggy off at Reagan airport, but stumbled upon this really neat area in Historic Alexandria and decided to stop and check it out. SO glad we did. It turns out it is very similar to downtown Charleston. The street we walked on was called King Street and it was so much like the King Street in downtown Charleston. Btw, my new favorite friend is Garmin, the GPS Mike insisted I have while traveling around. Having Garmin makes me feel comfortable as I think about venturing out with Mikey tomorrow while Mike works. Mike even reminded me tonight NOT to leave the house without him (Garmin). :)

Here are some pictures from today. It was an absolute gorgeous day. Mid 70’s, not a cloud in the sky. What an awesome treat to be able to walk around for several hours in MAY! Something not quite so enjoyable in the “Charleston” heat. It was truly a great day. We just miss Braeden SO much! :(

Mikey spotted a fountain right away. Btw, the shirt he is wearing was a Birthday gift from the Kozick family (Sayelor) and it has a boy and girl on it with “Mikey” underneath the boy and “Sayelor” underneath the girl and “Best of Friends” printed on the top. It is PRECIOUS! We miss them already. :(

The little white dot in the middle of the picture is the Capital Building. Boats were leaving from the pier heading to DC-

We toured this “Pirate Ship”-

We went in the neatest toy store. Mikey was glued to this Thomas Train table-

Mike’s earning his keep (JK, Adrianne would never ask Mike to cut the grass. He just has such a good heart)-

    Funny we just missed you- we flew out of Reagan yesterday. I’m about to post some pictures of our DC trip on Leah’s website. Yes, there is a lot more people and more traffic, but you will love it there. DC was a great area to grow up with good schools and lots of neat things to do with kids. I’ll send you a list of some of our favorite activities and parks in the area. And email me your address!
