Monumental Moments: Part One

A little thing called the Washington Monument
Hitting 95 to 100 degrees a day with 40-60% humidity everyday, D.C. was some of the hottest weather I've experienced since Spain. While I generally look forward to the heat (sunshine is my thing), hot heat plus sticky humidity is a recipe for disaster when it comes to my body and hair. I'll spare you the details, but let's just say my clothes were more than drenched after hour tours and miles of walking around. Yet, it wasn't just the humidity that put a bit of a damper on my trip. On the second day of my trip to the Virigina/DC area, I accidentally erased all the pictures on my camera from my first day's adventure. So, sadly, all my amazing photos from day one are forever lost in the limbo to memory card heaven. Thankfully, I was still able to go back and re-shoot some of the big sites from the nation's capital. While I am still heartbroken over losing some of the most beautiful shots of my first day on the east coast, I have the consolidation of my memories to keep me from getting teary-eyed. Thus, since I lost about 200 shots that day, I'm going to have to spread out the few photos I have left from D.C. As a side note, Please ignore the fact that I will be wearing the same thing for all my D.C. posts (I seriously crammed what I could into one jam-packed day!). Below is a little taste of pancakeSTACKER in D.C.
It was so hot out that I was so giddy to find this mini fountain, can you tell?
I didn't know if people were allowed to run through it
But since no one stopped me, I was sure it was made for cooling down
So, cool down I did
