Cherry Hill Park was planned as one of our “splurge” stops because it’s more than our target camping rate but they make it so easy to get into DC and there are two fenced dog areas and another big open area and they practically hold your hand the whole way through all your travel plans that I knew we had to go there. We were originally going to wait until May/June to go to DC but it looked to be getting too cold to get the most out of New England and the weather was holding here so we made time for a five night stop (Oct 16-21).
K took the kids to DC two days on the Metro and we all did a night bus tour (they even pick up at our campground!) and we went to Mass at the very-impressive Basilica at the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception at Catholic University but, really, my favorite part was meeting up with my cousin and his wife for lunch and cupcakes and the chance to reconnect after a lot of years. So many of our stops along the way have been highlights because of friends and family we have been able to spend time with.
But, I’ll include some touristy pictures anyway:
And one picture of A that sums up how the world is his playground:
