Luna Kahuna in Washington DC

My adorable niece Luna is out visiting us for 3 weeks! WE are so excited to have her. I got to play tourguide (my absolute favorite thing to do) and took her all over yesterday and today. First we went to Five Guys in downtown DC for hamburgers...she ate a pile of fries as big as her head! Then we went to Old Towne Alexandria for a homemade ice cream cone and to walk along the waterfront listening to the street performers. Our favorite was a little 8 year old boy who could play a mean trumpet. Lu walked up and gave him a tip. She is such a funny kid and was cracking jokes with Daron and laughed at ALL of his jokes in all the right places (Daron was in heaven! haha). Today we woke up at 7am and had breakfast, took the dogs outside and then headed to Washington DC. First thing to do since it was lunch time was head to Chinatown for a wonderful lunch at my favorite Chinese Restaurant. She had a sign drawn with her name (well she asked Ping for it to say LUNA TUNA haha.) Luna ordered Sweet and SOur Chicken and I got the Sesame Chicken YUMM. Then on the the Lincoln Memorial, the Vietnam Wall (where we looked up her
3rd cousins name and make a rubbing of it off the wall),We met this wonderful volunteer who was so sweet with her and helped us find Dickie Nelson on the wall) Womens Vietnam Memorial, Korean Memorial, the Albert Einstein statue (that she started kissing EWWW) , that sits outside the National Academy of Sciences.....Drove past the Washington Monument, the White house, and we took lots of pictures. It was a fabulous day and we had a blast! Hope you enjoy the pictures. I am so thrilled to be able to braid her hair every I miss having my girls home!
