 Such a lovely view!

I was very impressed with this guy.  I have never seen someone like this in NYC and that is saying something. 

These globes were surrounding the Boston Commons area.  I don't know what they were for, but I really liked them!

 Starting our journey walking the Freedom Trail. 

 Of course we went through a couple of cemeteries.  It is such a peaceful place to be. 

I love fall.

East Coast Fall Foilage

 My friend took me on her adventure one weekend.  We drove through seven states in two days!  Only in the East Coast are you able to do that.  We started in New York and went through Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut and New Jersey.  

We saw this lady next to us while we were driving.  I love it. 

 The American Hotel in Sharon Springs, New York.

 The store Beekman 1802. Josh and Brent were on Survivor and they bought a farm, bought a store and produce soap and cheese.  

 I loved the stores decor.

 Red Covered bridges in New Hampshire. 

 Portsmouth, New Hampshire cute little town.



 A cool lighthouse on a island in York, Maine. 

 Almost home! It rained most of the time, but thankfully when we got out of the car the rain would stop and start again when we got in the car. We got lucky.

Two days and this is all the junk we had! That is girls for you.

My favorite place to visit is still Vermont. Everytime I go there it takes my breath away. My new favorite could be Maine though.  I have wanted to go for awhile now and we didn't go very far into Maine, but from what I saw I really liked and I can't wait to go again!

Washington, D.C. - Capitol Building & Library of Congress

This was the third time that I have been to D.C.  One of the things that I love about this place is that it doesn't matter how many times you have gone you can always find something you haven't done before.  I hadn't been to the Capitol Building and I was able to get the last ticket of the day for Saturday. Lucky me!  It is hard to see just from pictures how massive this place is but trust me it is LARGE!

 The construction of the Capitol Building started in 1793 and was completed in 1800.  Amazing I know, how people were able to construct this beautiful structure without the help of all the things we can't live without nowadays.  

 One of the two State statutes for Utah.  No clue who this guy is, but still pretty cool!  Each state gets to pick two for show.  The other one for Utah is Brigham Young no surprise there.

 The gorgeous ceiling of the dome. 
 Guess who!?!

 Poor guy I would not want my office near all of these tourists.  Me included. 

The Library of Congress. 

 I also haven't been to the Library of Congress. National Treasure... :)  You actual can't go into the library which makes sense, but you can view it surrounded by I am sure soundproof class so people can have peace and quiet while they are in there. 

 Ceiling of the library. 

I love D.C.'s architecture it is truly gorgeous wherever you go, but hot you can tell by how red I am.
