These are the last of the vacation pics that I'll bore you with, I promise.
On our last full day of Washington, DC, we went to the Red Velvet Cupcakery. I don't think they've been on Cupcake Wars yet but that show has been making me want cupcakes, so off we went. First, I'll say the address I had written down for this shop (which I got off the internet) was 675 E. St NW. It's not on E street. That's an office building. It actually faces 7th street - the nice lady at the office building was kind enough to tell us this after we banged on their locked door.
Anyhoo, I was ready to shell out $3 for a cupcake and be awed.
Eh, it was good. But I'm pretty sure I could make some just as good. That was also the reaction I got from my hubby and son. Of course, my son shoved his in his mouth so quickly, I'm not sure he tasted it. He got a red velvet with cream cheese buttercream and my DH got some kind of mocha flavored one. I got a double chocolate with peanut butter buttercream icing. It was yummy. I'm going to try to make them.
Mine was the only one I got a pic of.
We also went to Ford's Theatre that day and to the Peterson House across the street where Lincoln died. This is a pic of the room where he died. The actual bed where he died is at a museum in Chicago but they've tried to recreate the room with historically accurate furniture, etc.
And last, but not least, here is a pic of us with our state representative, Louie Gohmert. He gave us and about 20 other people from our area a tour of the Capitol building. It started at 7pm and lasted until about 10pm-10:30pm or so. Ben had completely wilted by then. We all look pretty ragged.
We appreciated the private tour though. Mr. Gohmert is a history buff and really knew some interesting stories. He would make a great history teacher.
Ok, I promise - no more vacation photos. :)
Up next, a blog giveaway!
