Washington, D.C. Trip ... Day Four

We started day four off by going to an international grocery store. This is one of the things I love about the Washington metro area.  There is so much diversity.  You do not have to go more than a few steps outside your front door to experience a different culture than your own.  When we went to the grocery store, can you believe I forgot the camera?! So, I can't share the crabs running around in the big metal table with the women catching them self-serve style or all of the strange live fish that you can buy for dinner. However, here are pictures of what I bought.

A large selection of different noodles (mostly gluten free). My Tom Sawyer will be in Heaven for a few weeks.

We tried the two new fruits I bought right away. They were cactus fruit and Korean Melon. We liked the melon fruit much better but both were sweet and tasty.

Little Red Ridinghood really liked the Korean Melon.  We will have to get that again someday.

We next went to George Mason University so we could show the kids where we (Mommy and Daddy) met. We drove them crazy with stories of here is where we ate breakfast; this was the spot of our first study group; we used to sit on this bench between classes ... you get the point.  Their eyes were a bit glazed over by the end of our memory tour. LOL

We finished off the afternoon with a quick walk in the rain around Great Falls Park and a visit to their Nature Center.

The day was completed with an evening of play at their cousins' home.  What a busy and fun day.  Just two more days to go ....




  1. Hey we have those same homeschool shirts!

  2. Looks like another fun day! Y'all really packed a lot into your time there! It really makes me want to go up and visit!

    Hope your week is going well!
