|All smiles at 5 am!|
Thanks to a co-worker of Mr Incredible we arrived equipped with SmarTrip cards to ride the Metro all week. Getting around on the Metro was one reason I picked DC, we could get around without having to have the added expense and hassle of renting our own car. So our first adventure was to find the Metro station at the airport and ride to our hotel. Early check-in was availible since it was a down time.
We settled in to our home for the next 5 days, picked up some smoothies for the next Metro ride and headed to the Capitol! Today's goal was to see the White House and National Christmas Tree. On the train ride we met a young girl about 4 who was dressed up for a Christmas party. Her and her mom were heading to the Judge's Tree Trimming Party and she looked the part in her pretty dress.

After a sleepy ride home on the Metro after our exciting day, we ate dinner in our room from the hotel bar as we watched a movie on TV in our jammies. Anyone remember "The Shaggy Dog" with Tim Allen? Gotta get enough sleep as tomorrow we tour the Capitol!
