Our Cultural Diverse Day

The weather was spectacular today.  There was no way you could stay in today.  We met one of the Barlow interns this morning and asked what she was up to today.  A group was going to the Georgetown basketball game.  That was something Elder Anthony wanted to do but we thought we had missed out.  We hurried into the Barlow found tickets up in the nose bleed section and bought them and headed out to the game at the Verizon Center.

Georgetown lost. 

After the game we were in Chinatown so we decided to go out to eat.  We found a typical Chinese Restaurant.

We stayed on the bus on the way home and went to Safeway to get the eggs on sale.  We came home and it was so nice outside that we couldn't go in.  We put the groceries away and headed out for a walk.  We headed to the Kennedy Center to walk around their observation deck.

You can see the National Cathedral in the distance.

The Watergate buildings. 

Lincoln Memorial. 

Washington Memorial

The Kennedy Center is huge.  This gives you a view of how big it is.  

Elder Anthony is curious of what this building is.  It is in a Navy secure compound.  

Memorial Bridge.

A plane flying into Reagan National Airport. 

 We decided to see what was playing at the Millennium Stage.  It was The Shepherd School of Music at Rice University.  It was fantastic.  They had a pianist Ryo Kaneko that was so good.  I have never seen hands move so fast in my life.  We are so glad we stayed and heard these young performers.  Elder Anthony said we have gone from the basketball court to the concert hall.  That is a culturally diverse day.


  1. What a fun day! Your lucky to have so many events to choose from in DC.

  2. You do have such exciting adventures. Also, do you share your sour dough start? I would love to get some from you.

  3. You have seen and done a lot of amazing things! Sounds like a great day!
