Since I've Been Gone...

I'm just going to pretend that my last post wasn't 3 1/2 months ago. Moving on... In the past couple of months one of my best friends, Ashley, came to visit me in D.C.

She got the full D.C. experience, including about a 7 mile walk around all of the monuments. I decided next time I did that I would rent a bike...and several weeks later one of my other best friends, Anna, came to visit and we rented bikes! That is definitely the way to go. I am becoming quite the little D.C. tour guide.

Somewhere in between that time my parents came to visit! It was so nice to have them here. I miss living 10 minutes away from them. We had a jam packed schedule full of shopping, cooking, eating, and seeing the sites. 

Steve and Patti. Aren't they so cute?

The husband and I are now Mount Vernon members. I think that means we are locals now. 

They rented a tandem bike when they visited at the monuments. Oh how I wish I could've seen that.

I firmly believe I have the best parents in the world.
We have had a steady flow of visitors and I love it! I hope all of our family and friends come to visit us while we are in this historical city.
