We love the classic Jimmy Stewart movie Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. Though Chris didn’t teach anyone bird calls or try to lobby congress for any good deals, we did get to explore the Capitol for our family vacation and take in some of the fun sites.
More than finding snapshot worthy edifices, however, our trip was aimed to give us a chance to spend time with dear friends who recently relocated from Louisville to D.C.. The Townsend’s live right on the Hill and have spent much of their lives in Washington, so were able to not only share their lives with us for a few days, but to show us all of their favorite spots, including finding some tasty eats at Good Stuff.
We thoroughly enjoyed our much needed vacation and learned a bit about the complexities of life for a family of six in a big city setting. I wonder how much we’ll be able to apply to our situation a few years from now when we’re living in a large overseas city?
