To finish off our busy first day in DC, we headed to a 4PM Nationals game at their new stadium.
Although hubby has been to their old stadium, I apparently didn’t blog about. They have built several new stadiums around the country since he started his quest to visit them all, and we were excited to catch a game at the new park.
It was a gorgeous day for a ball game & the park was really beautiful- including lots of great tributes to baseball legends.
Of course, one of the most important things about any stadium is the food selection & DC had a great variety of things to eat, including lots of regional items like a crab-cake sandwich.
It was a great stadium to visit- the crowd was having a great time & the scoreboard was fun to watch.
The stadium sits right on the river, and there are lots of interesting things to look at around the stadium. It was fun how many of their games & entertainment featured political or historical things- like the president’s race around the bases.
The neighborhood around the park had a great bar that was fashioned after some containers, and there were many new buildings and residential construction that will make this a fun neighborhood in a few years. Hubby insisted on driving across town to try a BBQ joint we’d read about & we quickly learned it’s foolish to leave Texas in search of a better brisket!
GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: We’re celebrating hubby’s birthday by recovering from our fishing trip & a fish fry with friends.

There actually wasn't too much to see, but it was … [Read More...]
We continued our Monuments run through DC by heading East past the World War II Memorial (which is gorgeous!) and back by the Washington Monument, stopping long enough to take a few photos (with baby) in front of the White House. Running down the middle of the National Mall, we were surrounded … [Read More...]
Going to get right on our DC trip & hopefully keep up with blogging through our busy April. Visiting Washington DC during the Cherry Blossom Festival had been on our travel list for many years, but it's always around our birthdays (which makes scheduling more tricky) and it seemed like a good … [Read More...]
A few weekends back, in March, our friends had received free tickets to the Houston Museum of Art's Age of Impressionism exhibit. Sounded like a great way to spend a Saturday, after lunch at Christian's Tailgate and before dessert at Amy's Ice Cream. We had fun hanging out, catching up, and … [Read More...]
Secrets of the Baby Whisperer: How to Calm, Connect, and Communicate with Your Baby I picked up this book as another one that came highly recommended and was often referenced when people mentioned the EASY method with their children.
