My friends and I started off the weekend by attending the free Jazz festival in the sculpture garden on the National Mall. However, a short rainstorm closed the festival and we were amiss, looking for something to do. Luckily there is always something to do in D.C. 

This was taken at Truckaroo, a festival in the Navy Shipyards that consisted of dozens of world famous food trucks. It was definitely a good detour. 

A great friend of mine happened to be in the city, and he graciously hosted us for the weekend. 

As I always like to say... Keep your friends close and your Republican friends closer. This one's a keeper for sure.
