we saw and ate and experienced so much together. we paid visits to our perennial favorites (busboys & poets for bookshelf browsing, blueberry pancakes at eastern market, a loop around the tidal basin, supper at founding farmers, rowhouse gawking on capitol hill, wawa coffee for the road) and sprinkled new interest into the mix (compass coffee, popcorn and salted caramel ice cream at jeni's). traveling as three is more than we could dream.
and as for francis, we are deeply happy to have the chance to show him the earth and take him to beauty. our wide-eyed boy is wildly interested in the world around and he finds his best sleep away from home. he's got the wanderlust of his mama and papa, we are sure of it.
