Day One - Trip to Washington D.C.

We left for our long awaited trip Friday evening after Caleb got home from work. We'd decided to make good use of Caleb's vacation time and drive through the night. Neither of us had ever had to drive through the night before - we'd slept in the back of fifteen passenger vans, while our poor parents drove - so we had little idea of what we were getting into :-)

It was rough - ugh! Just thinking about it makes me tired! But making a long story short - or rather, a long trip short - we finally arrived around 4 pm.  

Aunt Linda and Uncle James and the boys met us and took us to dinner at The Cheesecake Factory. (Which, by the way is my new favorite restaurant!) The waiter brought Elise a little plate with slices of bread and banana :-)

The presentation of the dishes were very creative and attractive!

Very happy to be there - finally!
