Baseball in the Capitol

I meant to tell you that I broke down and bought some ridiculous/awesome clearanced mittens while we were in Georgetown.  The tips of the mittens are neon.  So so neon.  Sometimes I would get dizzy waving them in front of my face.   Here’s Rachel and I at the Air and Space museum.  Let’s be honest.  You can’t really see much in this picture other than my mittens.  So neon, right?photo-12

Ok, so moving on to Friday.

We went to a Nationals baseball game!  It was only an exhibition game, but still exciting to see a new (to us) ballpark and to take in our first baseball game of the season.  And it was against the Yankees (booooo).  So it was pretty clear which team to cheer for.

Highlights of the Nationals Stadium:

  • Walking in an immediately meeting presidents.  Awesome!

  • Reading about the history of baseball in DC (seriously, what was up with the way players posed for their pictures?

  • Eating cupcakes at the stadium.  Seriously an inspired idea.

  • In Minnesota, mascots do the race to target field.  In DC they have the presidential race.  It filled our hearts with much joy.

Lowlights:

The wind.  It was out of control.  We were beyond freezing.  And desperate times call for desperate measures.

Oh, and we meandered by the white house in the morning.  That will be a much cuter ending to this post.  Here is me and Rachel. And you can even kind of see the white house behind us.  Oh selfies.  (Fun fact, I recently learned that selfies is a thing the people say.  I was on a photo scavenger hunt and I used context clues to figure out what it meant.  Because I’m hip and with the times.image_2
