Fall in DC

This past weekend I was in Washington, DC with my family for my sister’s birthday. It was the perfect fall weekend, with sunshine, delicious food, discovering new neighborhoods and quality family time. We walked almost everywhere and I was able to see the city in a new way. The stunning weather and the changing seasons made for such a beautiful weekend. Here’s some of what I saw:IMG_0019We don’t get changing seasons in San Francisco so it was a nice reminder to see these crunchy brown leaves.

IMG_7307After coffee at Bakehouse, we ran into the U Street Farmers Market for Salted Caramel Apple Pie and a quick ogle at these pretty greens.IMG_7316For a sugar break, we stopped into Olivia Macaron in Georgetown. I loved the pistachio but the chocolate was the winner.IMG_7320Hi Washington Monument! You look good. (See what I meant about the gorgeous weather?)IMG_7325After a long morning of sights and bike-riding, we had a late lunch at Sakuramen in Adams Morgan. The highlight were the mushroom buns above.
