Sunday Outing

Friday was my Mom’s birthday and to celebrate we had a day out in D.C. yesterday.  Our original plan was to go to the Newseum, but road closures because of events going on in D.C. made it hard to get down there, so we decided to go to the Cathedral instead.  My sister lives right across from the Cathedral and is lucky enough to go to church there.  It is absolutely stunning. 

We had lunch at Cactus Cantina, an adorable and delicious pink lemonade cupcake across the street at Something Sweet, and then headed to the Cathedral.

the stained glass was amazing.  I definitely can’t do them justice with my camera


this was a tiny organ in the children’s chapel.  Isn’t it cute?

more stained glass- this was on the seventh floor also

Yes, Luke is absent from all of these pictures.  The only time we took pictures with people in them was in the gardens, and Luke wasn’t quite sleeping, but was definitely kicked back relaxing on the verge of a nap at that time, so i didn’t disturb him.  He was so good all day!  I wish I had gotten more pictures of the main area of the cathedral.  It’s humongous and gorgeous.  There is so much to look at.  We’ll have to do the Newseum next time!


  1. I LOVE Cactus Cantina. Yumm. Looks like you guys had fun.
