This year I stayed in DC because I had a wedding the Saturday after Christmas.  Every year it gets harder and harder to be away from family (who live in southern California) on Christmas…so I was super psyched when my mom, older sister, and my niece decided last minute to come visit!  Running around the city with a three year old is exhausting- I have mad respect for anyone who parents in an urban city- especially without a car.  Thanks to my friends the Manuels for letting us stay at their house and the Davis’ for letting us borrow a car seat.

We went to the US Botanic Gardens for their Christmas trains exhibit, ate pop tarts at Ted’s Bulletin in Eastern Market, and went to afternoon tea in Annapolis at the historic Reynolds Tavern.
