Tom had to go to Washington D.C. for a meeting on Friday. On Thursday, we decided to make it a family trip for the weekend. Why visit D.C. in winter, when temperatures are frigid and not really conducive to the amount of walking we’d be doing? For shoes, of course. One pair in particular. One ruby red pair, from a certain Birdie’s favorite movie. One of the actual pairs that was worn in the movie. Worth a trip to D.C.? Just to see the look on an awe-struck little face? Definitely.
After we admired, and admired the slippers, and sang a line or two of Somewhere Over the Rainbow, there was much to still accomplish. Like watching bees.
And eating fantastic food.
Looking out windows.
And above all – staying warm.
