National Harbor & Award

Maybe you're tired of seeing Christmas trees? I just had to show you all this one. It's at a neat place in our area called the National Harbor. The place is filled shops, restaurants, bars, hotels, and entertainment. And it's located on a marina. We went there for Hub's Aunts 60th birthday (specifically to McCormick & Schmick's!) It was a surprise dinner for her, and a really great time. We were late though and literally had to sneak behind her (they were stopped looking at the tree). Hub was telling me to hurry up but I couldn't pass up the beautiful view, my camera was begging me. So while walking swiftly I snapped a shot. It was so gorgeous with the sun setting on the water as the background. I wish I could have played around longer but dinner was calling our names!
