The Peeps Store At The National Harbor

Yes, there is a store, devoted entirely to Peeps.
I don't like them, I don't eat them...but the store is so cool and so totally fun.
And you will have to take my word on that because...
I did not take one picture inside, 
shame on me.

Outside, however, we did have some fun with the camera!

"Shout out to all my Peeps"

I'm like, "please get a sweatshirt" 
and the hubs says..."I'll just point to yours"!
I beg...

and he buys a sweatshirt, how fun is he!

This is the Christmas Tree at the National Harbor, the one I showed you yesterday 
all lit up at night.

* Duty * Honor * Country *
These statues are really incredible and so lifelike.
Many people paused in silence, one man saluted as his family took his picture.
It is an honor to be in the presence of these beautiful statues.

We had a little fun with Abe Lincoln

and Thomas Jefferson

We finished up with a kiss and now it was time to take the short walk back to the hotel,
that short walk is starting to seem a tad long!

And just in case you were wondering, and I am sure you were.
We had Italian for lunch/dinner while we were here,
and I dropped a big dollop of sauce right between two of the peeps on my brand new sweatshirt.
Yep, that was clean for all of about a half hour...
but no worries, 
the hubs was happy to give me his!

I showed the pictures to my son. He loved them, especially the Peeps car! Ha ha... I wonder how many people pose with GW, Lincoln, and Jefferson like that?? 😂

Debbie - I LOVE PEEPs, so I am totally jealous that you went to this store. It is now on my bucket list. And what a team player your hubby is, and good thing - so you could have a clean sweatshirt! It certainly looks like you are enjoying the holiday season!

Looks like fun! Very nice statues! The tree looks quite different in daylight, but no less impressive. Had to laugh at your sweatshirts! :-)

Haha! I love how Frederick Douglas is staring in resentment at your hubs joking around with Abe. The military statues.. wow, at first I thought they were alive. Incredible!

The only way to eat a peep is smooshed between two graham crackers.

I don't care for peeps either but the shirts are too cute, how fun your hubs got one too, good thing he did with your accident. Wow with you guys standing in front of it you can really see how big the tree is. Those statues are pretty cool, so neat they have something like that.Your picture in the heart is too cute!

You two are just so fun and I am smiling on this one. I loved this adventure. Your shirts are adorable, of course.
I really liked the two of you showing off with the awesome statues. These were totally cool. I do have such a patriotic heart.
Sending loving thoughts and hugs your way to you two love birds!
