I took Liam on a short trip to Old Town Alexandria one day when we were visiting DC. It was only two metro stops from my in-law's metro stop. The first place we went to in Alexandria was George Washington Masonic Temple. I saw this building on the way to downtown DC, so I was excited to explore it. This temple sat on a hill. After we got off the metro, I pushed Liam up the hill in his stroller to get to the entrance. I was sweating like a pig. No joke, my sweat dripped down my face, my back, and I was soaked in my own sweat by the time I got up to the entrance. Humidity...yikes!
This was my second time to a masonic temple (first was in Philadelphia, that one was really awesome!), and truth be told I wasn't very interested to learn about the building (I'm not an architect yo!) or the history of the masonry (because I already know some of it), so we skipped the tour and just wander around the main hall and the ground floor. Also, we were not allowed to take our stroller in, so I was like no way am I going to make it through the whole tour with a little tot.
I really enjoyed walking up and down the sidewalks and look at all the beautiful windows displays. We stopped for some cupcakes at Alexandria cupcakes store, and went olive oil tasting. It was one of the best things to do in DC area.
