My Trip : Part 2 of 2

Hello Lovelies~

 Last time we spoke, I was sharing Dinosaurs and Sea Life with you, this time, we'll cover the Hope Diamond Collection and Dinner that night.

 Pure Quartz. It's looks small ish in the picture, but it actually came up to my waist! It was amazing to see and feel. The Energy that radiated off of it made me feel all shivery.

These were the best pictures from my phone of this incredible collection. I'll do another post when I get the pictures from Kelly's camera. Every Piece was.... indescribable to experience.

 The next few pictures are of the Hope Collection's less precious, but equally amazing display.

There was so much to see, I wish I could show ya'll everything! But That would take forever >.>  It really would.

Super cute popcorn machine outside the museum.

Duncan Doughnuts in China Town!  And the Entrance to China Town is below.

 This is sadly the best part of China Town in D.C.

By the time we got home, her family was back from the Boyscout Jamboree, so we all went out to eat. I was told it was a very nice restaurant, so I dressed up!  As it turns out, I was the most dressy of our group, but It was ok. ^_^ I tend to be one of the more Dressed to Impress in a group.

I wore my Black and White Meta dress. The hair style is an amazing feet of awesomeness. It is held together with one boby pin and the two hair sticks you see in front. That's it. It didn't move all night O.O....

As an appetizer we have the most delicious Grilled Bruschetta with a Triple Tomato and Mozzarella salad. It was tossed with a light sprinkle of parsley and a healthy drizzle of thick Balsamic Vinegar. It was so yummy.

 This particular appetizer isn't on the menu and is only served for a few weeks of the year due to the tomatoes only being grown and harvested within a certain window of time. I was so lucky to get to try this!   

For my main dish, I got the Jambalaya Pasta. It had strips of chicken, beef, and large shrimp in it. I added button mushrooms for a bit more texture and oh my lord! Heaven!

Kelly got the Whiskey Barbeque Burger, which was oh so yummy!

And her brother, Chris, got the plank grilled Mahi Mahi with onion straws. The fish was lightly seasoned, so the natural flavor really came through. It was very good.

 Then.....This came out.

Bread Pudding in a White Chocolate cream topped with a Vanilla Bean ice cream and accented with Raspberry sauce made into cute hearts.

 Su cute! So good! Served warm! There was almost a fight over this desert. But we were all so full after dinner that there were only a few fork battles and in the end, we were all satisfied. ^_^

That is the end of Day 2!

Thanks for reading!
