Inauguration Day to Night

Day: Walking 2+ miles to the Capitol at 5:30am in snow boats, enduring freezing temperatures, wearing 4 layers of clothes with hand and foot warmers, waiting 6 hours for the inauguration, watching the 44th President of the United States take the oath of office, playing on the frozen reflecting pool, watching President Obama's great speech.

Night: Attending George Washington University's Inaugural Ball at the Omni, strolling through 4 ballrooms in high heels, nibbling on minature desserts, dancing to Obama's theme song- Signed, Sealed, Delivered, consoling some students who had a little too much to drink, oohing at the ice sculptures, arriving back home at 1am.

What an all-around long, but amazing day.

And of course, more pictures are on my Flickr account.
