After donuts yesterday, @littledeadpool8 & I went on another adventure in DC. We drove over to Potomac Park where I managed to parallel park on the first try! We then walked for what felt like forever from the car to the Dr.Martin Luther King, Jr. memorial, then around to the Franklin Delano Roosevelt memorial, & finally ending up at the Thomas Jefferson memorial. Our walk was way too long & far too hot. We couldn't find water, so Landon & I drank straight from the water bag on my feed set. You do what you gotta do, right? I'm having a hard time staying hydrated in the summer heat. & then we capped it all off with yet another pizza for Lando. Anyway, I'm about to run off to the store to get the ingredients I need to make a yummy, southern dinner.
This morning Landon & I were stuffing our faces with donuts at @stickyfingersdc where I thought I might have been overhearing a conversation by the owner about business strategies. Before we left, I stopped to chat with him & tell him that we aren't vegans, but my 8 year old prefers the vegan donuts there over "normal" donuts everywhere else. The man turned out to be a GM for a new sister company @eatfarewell located near Union Station in DC. He was really rad & gave us this $20 gift to visit Fare Well. We can't wait to check it out! If you're in the Washington DC area, you should absolutely follow both accounts & check them out in the store. Sticky Fingers is a TWO TIME Food Network Cupcake Wars champ. ...& if I hadn't told you it was vegan, you'd never have known!
Wednesday's can be magical if you have a best friend that always brings you socks from her Disney trips. I've never been to Disney World. Grace goes at least 72 times a year. I had to google what the heck these socks were. The monorail. The Disney monorail. @gracelfleming had me scared there may have been something Star Wars I didn't know!
I stole this from someone, but I don't remember who. My bad. This is me today. It was an awesome yet busy weekend. Lando & I went into the city today for donuts & to go to the Library of Congress. We got the donuts, but gave up searching for a parking spot within 3 miles of the Capitol Building after half an hour. So, today was a much needed lazy day. #lazywithacape
Today, we're at Mount Vernon, the home of George Washington. We just took this photo on the boat, The Spirit of Mount Vernon, as we cruise down the Potomac. It may be overcast, but it could not be a more perfect day for this.
Today is a better day than yesterday. In honor of that, this one is for my dearest, sweetest friend @weelijinx Please keep her in your thoughts & prayers as she's doing very poorly at the moment. #shareacoke#withannemariestevens

I know it's taco Tuesday, but hot dogs are kinda like the American version of the taco, right? YEP. @littledeadpool8 & I are having some fun adventures today. Follow me on Snapchat if you want to see the most bored child in the universe. "ashleyvongraves" is the name. #tacotuesday#americanstyle#merica
Good life advice from Steve Jobs. ...especially considering I'm sitting by the pool, cleaning out my photos, & am 90% likely to keep posting things. ....or maybe I'll just read my book. #NotSorryForBeingNotSory
