This year my family and I celebrated Christmas a little differently than usual. My parents came to DC for the long weekend where I hosted our Christmas Dinner with a few site seeing excursions thrown in.
We had really good weather for this time of year - highs of low 50s with no snow. It made for a great day riding the metro, taking photos, and exploring my new town. I showed them everything from the National Monument, Roosevelt's Memorial, to the Korean War Exhibit.
I also took them on a hike of one of the little treasures hidden in my little suburb - Burnt Mills. Its a cute little hiking trail that goes on either side of Columbia Pike - one is a flat countryside trail that follows the easy going path of the stream, and the other lets you hike over large boulders as the water descends into the DC watershed. Overall, you can do about 15 miles in beautiful wooden trails.
