This weekend I went down to DC with a few friends to walk the 2016 National Walk for Epilepsy. It was a three mile course and was full of stunning landmarks, monuments, and of course some of the most wonderful people I had ever met. Afterward we all decided to do a bit of site seeing. First was the Washington Monument since it was well, right in front of us. Then we made it down to the White House. Now I had never seen the White House in person before so I was thrilled. I was shocked that I was starstruck by a building most people drive by everyday. I couldn't get over what had occurred in there and what I was sure was occurring in the building that day. After ogling for quite some time we decided to rest and sit on a bench. Just as we began getting comfortable a impeccably dressed couple came up to us. They had planned to go on the garden tour but decided they did not want to wait in line.
In a twist of fate, as soon as we stepped into line it moved almost immediately. Here is a peek of what we saw.
|The entrance was a beautiful crimson red.|
|Tulips were literally EVERYWHERE!|
|Yes, that's right. I got to see one of Obama's dogs. It was great!|
|This was the entrance to the First Lady's kitchen garden.|
|While it is still growing there is already more lettuce in their garden than in my entire diet.|
|Seriously. I think during this time of year there are more tulips than people in DC.|
|And I wanted them all.|
