I had an exciting weekend with [livejournal.com profile] taraisagoddess. :) She drove down to visit me! (And made crazy excellent time on the roads.)

On Friday, we met up with Dani and her offspring to catch the last weekend of The Big Maze at the National Building Museum. The view from the center of the maze was pretty cool.


The maze itself didn't take long to do, so we also checked out a few other exhibits in the museum. They were neat, though I feel like I would have gotten more out of them if I was interested in architecture.

Still, I got to get a really good top view of the maze, so I think it was worth it!


Afterwards, we took the metro to the zoo to have lunch. The plan was to picnic next to the pizza playground while Dani's kid played. But they got rid of the tables near the playground! In the end, we ate at a pavilion nearby and skipped the pizza altogether. Which kinda made it silly to walk allllll the way down the hill in the first place. Oops.

Then we began the long trek back up the hill, stopping here and there to look at the animals. I FINALLY got to see the baby panda! She's so cute and FLUFFY!!! She was eating food and climbing rocks. I was pleased.

By that point we were all tired, so we hopped on the metro and went back home. The next day, Tara and I mostly vegged out and watched movies on the couch with a little bit of Ingress gaming before lunch. In the evening we roasted marshmallows over an open fire which was a most excellent way to end the day.

On Sunday, we went to the Udvar Hazy Air and Space Center and saw cool things like the Discovery space shuttle and an imax movie about Hubble. I do like that museum, but I really wish they had more information about the exhibits. It always feels a bit like I should know what all this stuff is already.

In the evening, we took Tara to the Alamo Drafthouse to see Guardians of the Galaxy again. She doesn't have a cool theater like that at home. We ordered sooooo much stuff. Our waiter was just constantly running back and forth.

The next day Tara had to leave, which was sad, but we are discussing plans to go to the Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool Festival together next month. That would be fun! I hope it all works out, cause I had a ton of fun this weekend. :)
