Our adventure began on Friday morning LONG before the sun was up. We were out and on the road for over an hour before we got to see the beautiful sunrise!
After we left the museum, we went back to the hotel to officially check in and get ready for baseball! We got to Nationals Park around 5:30 for a 7pm game, and the gates weren't open. There was a doubleheader that day, and the first game had run pretty long. So, thanks to twitter, we found out that the gates weren't going to open until 6:20pm, which meant that we were going to stand in line for an hour. By the time we finally got in the park and got to our seats my feet were KILLING me.
The park itself is really nice. We had a great view from the upper deck on the third base side.
Dead Presidents RaceChristy and her fiance (!!) arrived! Christy and I have been blog friends for a really long time, so I was so glad that we got to meet up this weekend! She and "The Pilot" are so fun, and the four of us had a blast.
