We headed down to DC for a day trip yesterday. When taking Benjamin on a trip, we have learned to set our expectations exceedingly low, just in case. Ben is a pretty adaptable traveler, but he does have his limits. We also try to make as few plans as possible and/or be prepared to abort plans within seconds. It forces us to be a bit more spontaneous.
Well… the trip far exceeded our expectations and Benjamin had a blast! We started at the Smithsonian Zoo, met up with John’s co-clerk and his wife for lunch at a delicious BBQ place, and checked out the Air & Space Museum after that. We were pretty wiped out by the end, but I insisted that we make a pit stop at a cupcake place (Baked & Wired) that I had received a recommendation for before heading home. (I may or may not have come home with six cupcakes, rather than just one.)
