Washington D.C.

I am so sorry it has been so long since I have updated my blog. We were in D.C. for a week. We left for D.C. on Thursday, November 10th and returned on Thursday, November 17th. We got back at 10:00 a.m. and I was back at work by 1:00 and then worked a full day yesterday (Friday) as well.

We had a very nice in Washington D.C. I did have internet access, but I was so busy I really couldn't update anything. I worked in a booth "advertising" the RLS Foundation from early in the morning until dinner time every day. However, we were able to take a nice break each day for lunch and dinner and ate at some great restaurants: Burmese, Chinese, Indian, Thai, Costa Rican, Lebanese, and others. We had some fabulous food and worked it all off by all the walking we did. John especially walked a lot as he often went and toured while I was busy in the booth.

I am including a bunch of pictures from our trip here as well! I will try to be updating this more often from now on.

The botanical gardens that John spent one half day touring without me.


The first day we were there, we had some time to tour together. We spent a week in D.C. in 2001 so we did the quick things, like the white house. It looks so much smaller than you would imagine it.


During a lunch break we went and saw the new World War II Memorial which hadn't been built yet when we visited in 2001.


John went and saw the first Civilian-built space ship "Space Ship One" and since I wasn't there, took a picture himself.


This is the booth that we ran the entire week. Well, I ran it but Jb did volunteer to help relieve me on occasion. The days got very long.


John in China town. There is some great food there.


John got to see the new Panda exhibit at the National Zoo. He took pictures and a video for me and showed them to me later :)


St. John's church where all of the presidents since James Madison have attended services.
