October in The District of Columbia

The Washington Monument at night from a moving vehicle.
We had great fun on our recent trip to Washington, D.C.  Wyatt and I mostly just played, went sightseeing and to the museums while Byron spent his days at a scientific conference. We enjoyed the good company of Bonnie, Joe, and eight-week-old Oliver each day and their cats, Milo and Jax.  Thanks to their generous loan of a stroller, we walked everywhere we could, hopped the Metro a few times (oh, if only Seattle could get one of those . . . ) and almost took the Tourmobile.  We had dinner at Luigi's, enjoyed homemade portabello cheese steaks, and on our last day, ate a delicious lunch at Lalibela Ethiopian Restaurant near Logan's Circle.   Our week sped by too quickly, but we certainly enjoyed every minute.

Wyatt and I had a picnic on The Mall -- Fig Newmans, bananas, and yogurt for him, a pretzel with mustard for me.
