white house tour, georgetown & cupcakes

Day 2 of our Washington DC trip featured a private tour of the White House (including the kitchen, bakery and flower shop!!) and a trip to Georgetown for some shopping and eating.  definitely a fun day!

The White House (shown here at night) was all decorated for the holidays.

We headed through the gates…

…and down the quiet path to the White House.

Each year, the White House has a different decorating theme.  This year, it was Simple Gifts.  Everything was made out of simple things…and transformed into elaborate Christmas Trees and decorations.

A peek inside…

The decorated rooms led us right into the flower shop.

And, the kitchen and bakery, where we enjoyed on a chocolate truffle mouse!

It was a fabulous tour!

After the tour, we hopped in a taxi and headed straight to Georgetown.

We walked around and enjoyed the shops, then found some lunch…and a delicious cupcake shop!

There was a line out the door when we spotted the shop…who knew that cupcakes could cause this much chaos!

Chocolate PB Chip for me…and White Chocolate Peppermint for mom.

Hands down the best cupcakes I have ever had!  The chocolate cupcake was filled with PB chips, and the frosting was pure PB…delicious. 🙂

What a day! 🙂
