Spring Vacation Part 2 - Washington DC

November 8, 2009

March 26 - April 9, 2009

I went to DC to hang out with my mom, dad and my brother Marc. Unfortunately, some of my pictures were lost due to technical difficulties. It was great to be in DC in the spring. It is a truly beautiful city. I spent time walking or driving around the city, eating great food, working in the attic to clean out stuff and saw some friends. Here are some of the pictures.

This is the house I grew up in DC.

Me and my pops. Mom and dad.

Lunch with the family. Ruben Sandwich!

Murch Elementary, Alice Deal Junior High and Woodrow Wilson High school + the water tower:

The interesting and cool streets of DC:

Spring flowers, flowers and more flowers...

I had Mexican food with my friends Nikki and Jason.

I gave Nikki a face massage tool to help her with all the stress she holds in her cheeks from smiling too much.

I spent a wonderful day with Andy and the kids driving and walking around DC, looking at the cherry blossoms and enjoying a picnic lunch of crabs and Marvelous Market sandwiches.

I had some more Mexican food and went to my favorite Afghanistan restaurant.

And I went through the stuff in my parents' attic. It was like a time capsule. I remembered that a two-ton tree fell on the house the summer after my freshman year of college. We had to move out for repairs, so I dumped the entire contents of my bedroom into a few boxes and forgot about it. Here are some of the treasures I found there.

On one of my final days, I hung out with my dad and we made chocolate egg creams. He use to make them when we were kids. It reminded him of Brooklyn. It's chocolate syrup, milk and seltzer water.

It was nice to be home with my family and to visit DC at such a beautiful time of year.
