It’s been awhile since I’ve talked about our Boston to Washington Trip. Here’s the first few posts about it in case you missed them:

So Day 4, we woke up in our hotel that we stayed in for the next several days, the National Harbor Gaylord Hotel, which is where Rob’s work conference was being held. He had a meeting that morning and since I didn’t think I’d have enough time to go out and come back and meet him for lunch. I made the decision to just walk around the Gaylord and relax.

We ate lunch at the Cadillac Ranch in the National Harbor Mall with some of the other conference attendees. This was the ceiling for the entire restaurant!

After our lunch, we went back to the hotel for a little bit and then decided to walk around so Rob could see the place.

Then we walked back over to the National Harbor Mall. This sculpture called The Awakening is in a sandy area right near the mall.

Ever been to a PEEPS store? So cute and colorful and they had some Mike & Ike flavors I’d never seen before.

Down the center of the National Harbor Mall it’s decorated with a bunch of different statues of great Americans.

That evening was the welcome party for the conference. Rob pays for me to be a part of the evening activities so I got to enjoy dinner and the open bar with him.

Pretty cool lounge we were in for the party

The party ended too early, so many of the conference attendees headed across the street to the Piano Bar. It was a good time and honestly, I don’t remember too much. 😉
