    We have loved backing to Georgetown and exploring the grounds and greenhouse at Dumbarton Oaks (free admission all winter). To round out the outing, we recommend Poupon for pastries or Stakowskis for something savory.

    We liked the immersive fun of Spectacular Factory at ARTECHOUSE. One of us, who shall remain nameless, really loved their hot chocolate too!

    We really enjoyed the US Botanic Garden outdoor exhibit this year. It was so good last year- I’m thrilled they repeated it!

    We got a new puppy in January and have enjoyed walking more as a family, once to the Capitol grounds just to enjoy and another on the Mall, where we were able to take turns checking out the Smithsonian Castle before it closed for 5 years!
