First Day In Washington DC

After landing late Sunday night due to circling the airport for 50 mins and spending an hour and a half in the passport queue, I finally arrived at the Marriott hotel and fell into bed. Feeling refreshed after a good nights sleep it was time to explore DC.

Joni Jacobs had very kindly flown from Utah to keep me company and show me around Washington DC, as I had travelled on my own and had never been to the USA before.

We waited outside the hotel for our Uber taxi to take us to Tyson’s corner.

When we arrived at Tyson’s corner we started to explore the Mall. I thought I would take this photo as the shop name is very fitting for one of our Sasha friends.

Another shop I could not resist had beautiful children’s clothes in and the dress and shoes  in the window would look wonderful in Sasha size

One of the main reasons for visiting Tyson’s corner was to visit the American Girl store, which was great. I took lots of photos in the shop and I apologise for the glare on some of them, but it could not be avoided.

Joni found a great prop for Mary Righos.

(Above Bitty babies, I had always imagined then to be quite bigger than they are in real life)

After visiting Tyson’s corner, we went onto Fairfax and visited Target and then had lunch at a restaurant called True Food. The food was excellent and can definitely recommend it.

The next post will be visiting Washington DC , thanks for looking.

  1. Great post Theresa. It was so nice to see you and I hope you had a wonderful time in spite of the ankle sprain. Joni is so sweet and so nice to come to D.C. and spend time with you. I was also glad to see her there before the festival. I look forward to your posts and I am working on a post as well though not as organized as you my friend. ❤️ xxx
