This weekend, we finally ventured over to Georgetown. I've been wanting to go ever since we got to DC, so it was pretty exciting for me. It's such a pretty neighborhood -all that brick! We quickly realized though, that it probably wasn't the best idea for us to visit on a Saturday night. It was so crowded and busy all over. We ate at Good Stuff Eatery, which was amazing. Their salted caramel shake? Do it. Do it now. Then, of course we planned to stop by Georgetown Cupcake while we were there. How could we not? As we walked up to the bakery, we found that the line of customers resembled that of a line of fans waiting to get into a Harry Potter midnight showing (sans costumes). It was ridiculous, but I was still tempted to hop on in. We decided those cupcakes would be just as good on a weekday in the future when we wouldn't have to wait in such a long line. We walked over to Baked and Wired instead because we had heard their cupcakes were awesome too. Unfortunately, someone else must have read about their awesome cupcakes, because their line was just about as long as the other bakery's. We knew there was also a Sprinkles in Georgetown, but we have one at home in Scottsdale (and we try to avoid things we could do/get at home), so we just decided to head home. It was getting close to someone's bedtime anyway.
Oh! I almost forgot. We bought an umbrella stroller for Fox -and we brought it on the bus and metro with us and it made the night of walking so much nicer! ...until around the last hour. That was when he decided he did not want to ride in the stroller anymore. He wanted to push it. This led to a major freakout when I took control of the stroller when we got on the metro. And pushing a stroller carrying my purse while I carried Fox around and Cam carried Sloane was even less fun than it sounds. But it was great for about the hour and a half before that.
The ride home took a little extra long because there was some event going on that caused us to take a detour. We mentioned to Fox that he'd get a nice long nap when we got home (8 hours please?). And then Fox got excited and exclaimed "Everybody naps!" And then pointed over at the old woman who had fallen asleep across from us. Highlight of the evening. Besides that salted caramel shake.
Right by our last metro stop, there's a little cupcake shop. There are so many cupcake places here, and it's wonderful. It was Sticky Fingers and their sign said they've won Cupcake Wars twice, so that was good enough for us. We had really set our sights on cupcakes that night, so it was nice we were able to find a place (with absolutely no line). Also, we had been bribing Fox with cupcakes all night, so it was nice to be able to keep our word:)
