"Like on Vacay? Let's all go!"

You know that point you get to, you know the one where you wait so long to blog, then when you go to blog you can't come up with anything to say? Yep, totally how I feel right now. So, here's what has happened since we hiked to the wind caves, since we went to Oregon and Maui, and since I started my job...

  • I have been driving A LOT...
  • Tyler has been applying to Physical Therapy schools
  • I ran a 10k on Thanksgiving
  • We went to Baltimore and Washington D.C.
  • We had an awesome Christmas with our families
  • Spent New Years' Eve with friends
  • ...AND we are managing to stay warm in the sub-zero temperatures in Logan!
Oh, more about the Baltimore/Washington D.C. trip? Okay! We went on this adventure because Tyler had an interview with a school in Baltimore, and we decided to make the most of it! Here are some pictures, because that is the easiest way to talk about the trip.They are pretty out of order, and I don't really feel like fixing it, so... sorry...

One night we were walking around Baltimore, and everything closed SUPER early, so we decided we would go find this Holocaust Memorial.

 The first thing we did after getting to DC was walk to Georgetown. It was just a quick 1 mile walk across the river, and I had heard great things about Georgetown Cupcake... The stairs pictured above were super steep and long. I think I actually took a little break halfway up. Then I started to feel bad because there was a guy running up the stairs past us... oops.

 Basically heaven-on-earth... Georgetown Cupcake! We went two different times, and on Saturday night we had to wait in line for about 30-45 minutes. Completely insane! Totally worth it though.

 While Tyler was at his interview in Baltimore, I went to the National Aquarium! I thought this was a crazy looking fish, so I took a picture. Yay. Tyler thinks it is a cool fish, that's why I'm posting it.

I feel like the Washington Monument is pretty self-explanatory. We walked around to all of the monuments at night, which was pretty cool. Especially since we didn't have to fight a lot of crowds.

 The Thomas Jefferson Memorial

 A small part of the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial.

Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial

 Ford's Theatre. We didn't get to go inside because there was a performance that day, but we did get to go into the house across the street. 

 Library of Congress

 The White House (obviously)

Tomb of the Unknowns

Tower made out of all of the books written about Lincoln.

The BEST pizza I have ever had! It's called "We, the Pizza"

 The Eastern Market

World War II Memorial

 Lincoln Memorial

 The bed Lincoln died in.

Map of the Metro.

Giant Octopus at the National Aquarium in Baltimore. They don't let you use flash photography while taking pictures of the octopus because it scares him and would make him ink.

 A really old building on Georgetown University's campus. I felt really out of place there.

This is the Washington Monument in Baltimore.

We went to Fort McHenry on our last day in Baltimore.

 We even got to help change the flag. We were the only people there, so we had the whole place to ourselves.

This is on the 27th floor of the Baltimore World Trade Center. Here's a fun fact: It is the tallest pentagon-shaped building in the world.

...and last, but not least, a view of the Inner Harbor in Baltimore.

I'm sorry about the jumbled mess of pictures ... the whole trip is kind of blur in my mind too. Except for the cupcakes, I remember those perfectly. I think it is safe to say that 2012 was the year of traveling for us, and I loved it! 

Maybe I'll post more in 2013. But just maybe. I guess I will have to let you know where Tyler ends up going for PT school! This will be a very exciting year for us!
