OK, so believe it or not, I already written this entire post last night and it didn't appear as posted for some reason, so here it goes again:

We packed ourselves Friday night and first thing Saturday morning (6:30 AM) loaded my aunt's Camry on our way to the capital - Washington DC. The driver (me) was very good, and with the help of the GPS (yay!! to whom ever invented this brilliant thing) the driving wasn't a problem at all, and that was the first time driving here at all
. Chloe was in her bag the entire way, no sickness, no throwing up, like an angel, I was so proud:


We made some stops on the way, especially since I had only about 3 hours of sleep the night before. We arrived in DC at about 1:30 PM and checked in to the hotel, got some rest and headed to Georgetown. It was even nicer than I remembered, we walked around the shops, had ice cream and a great dinner at this Vietnamese restaurant (yummy)... Chloe insisted that we take her picture with this wooden fish at Anthropology, so we did:


When we got to the hotel for the night, Chloe remembered that she didn't get her play time, so my little brother obliged:


We woke up the next morning and headed to the monument area.
On the way, we saw this beautiful horse by one of the Smithsonians, so of course, picture time:


Chloe wanted to give her input on some major issues, but Capitol Hill was closed for visitors (renovations):

(don't know what that turned out blue)

Then we headed towards the other monuments, WW2 memorial:


some of the other monuments we didn't take pictures of, as we already have them from our last trip, and the camera battery was running low....

We walked down/up Pennsylvania avenue looking forward to Chloe's play date with Barney and Ms. Beasley. When we got there, the gate was closed, and the housekeeper told us that GW won't let those two play without parental supervision:

(don't mind my hair, it was hot like hell, and humid - in short: not the best hair day
)

Then we headed back to NYC. Home sweet home

Welcome back! It sounds and looks like you had a fabulous trip - how great that Chloe could participate in everything. I actually love the blue tinted picture -- very unique!

Welcome home! Looks like you all had a great time Eleanor! I love that you could bring Chloe with you everywhere. You're lucky she's such a good girl. I too love the one of the Capitol with the blue tint. Did you Photoshop it or did it just come out that way?

Came out that way. Don't really know why, as the picture of the hill we took on the other side with the same camera, came out fine.

Sounds like you had a great trip and Chloe is a wonderful traveller. I also love the picture of her in front of the Capitol - both with and without the blue tint!

I love that Capitol pic too, she looks ready to tackle all the important issues, you know, like funds for building new dog parks and research into even tastier treats.

Paint Shop Pro - Color Balance (6500K 30%)... shifted more to warm (red-yellow) than cold (blue). Sometimes too much white (like the marble) can fool the color sensor.

Cool thanks. I actually managed to fix it with Photoshop: Image >> Adjustments >> Levels (or Auto Levels which fixed it in one click
).
