Vacation with a Capital V

We have our next vacation in the pipeline. We'll be headed to Washington DC at the end of May. This trip will be killing a lot of birds with one stone. With one simple vacation I'll be crossing an item off my life to-do list, I'll be working on two NY resolutions (to travel more and to cross of 5 things from that life list) and we'll be attending our wonderful friends' wedding while there. I miss Steve & Meri terribly and will be so glad to see them, even if it is for an event that won't allow a lot of visiting time. It's a very small wedding, so not so bad but we all know how hectic weddings can be. And Josh has already acquiesced to my need to jam-pack our few days with as much sightseeing as possible. There are so many places I want to travel to that when I get a chance to go I feel the need to see everything that I couldn't suffer missing, just in case I never get to go back. Because I always want to go back, but then there's always that growing list of other places to see, ha. I can't wait to walk the National Mall and see the Museums of Natural History and American History. I love to learn on my vacations and I can scarcely think of a better place for a homegrown educational holiday than our country's capital.
