MLK Weekend in Washington, DC

Here’s to another MLK weekend in Washington, DC! I didn’t actually get to visit the MLK monument like in the past, but I still got to do some pretty cool things:

1. Attended my first gay wedding

2. Saw baby Bao Bao at the National Zoo

3. Frolicked around DC by myself, taking photos (and freezing my @$$  butt off)

4. Spent some quality time with family who were in town from New Jersey!

5. NO TRAFFIC to or from DC. I understand this is normal on holiday weekends because people leave DC. But if you know me at all you know that I have terrible luck with accidents on highways. So, hooray!

Some photos:

I couldn’t get any really good pictures because of the panda-inspired mob, but there was a good 5 minute period when the Bao Bao was just pawing at her mama and it was possibly the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.

Hope everyone had a good weekend! Off to spend my day off reading!
