Hi everyone!  Sorry I've been gone again for so long without a peep.  I realized I didn't mention the fam and I were headed on a little vacay.

We are back now.  It was quite lovely acutely, minus me getting sick anyway.  We picked up my stepson, Aidan, on the way, visited a dear old friend and her family in NY, visited my alma mater, and finished off in the great city of DC. 

We were in DC on Memorial Day which is a special day for us so we went to Arlington Cemetery.  It was my second time there and it's just such an amazing place.  It was Todd's first visit though and I think he was impressed too.  We planned on doing a bit more site seeing but with heat warnings and a precious baby we didn't stay out too long this time.  But . . . there will definitely be a next time!

Oh, and ladies, please, if you ever, ever go to DC for any reason, you MUST hit up the infamous Georgetown Cupcakes (or some of you may know them as DC Cupcakes from the TLC show) they really are the best cupcakes I've ever had in my life!  We bought a dozen and there wasn't a bad one in the bunch.  I think my very favorite was the german chocolate.

What did you do for Memorial Day weekend?  Anything special?  Off to check your blogs now!

It sounds so wonderful, and I really enjoy my trips to Arlington when we go. So moving.

But the cupcakes, I need to do those next time!

Sounds like you had a fabulous (and delicious) time!

We didn't do anything over the long weekend. I've been finishing up some projects, so the only time I left the house was to go to Costco. Ha!

Sounds like you had a great vacay. Can you believe that my parent's got cupcakes from Georgetown cupcake and didn't bring me one!

My Memorial Day was at the cabin and it was SO relaxing.

The last time I was in D.C. I got to go to Georgetown Cupcake and I definitely ordered two because I just couldn't choose. No shame, sister.
