Last day in D.C.

Hi all! Today is my first blog entry, and our last day in D.C. I wanted to add to Mitch's D.C. entry as well as complete our stay.
We really enjoyed our visit with my family. It was, as I am sure they would agree, wild to see them after so many years. Also, it was wonderful to meet cousins and cousins- in- law that I had never met. I truly hope it won't be any where near as long until we can see one another again. We all met at my Aunt and Uncles house and from there went out to eat at a cute restaurant where we had a room to ourselves. During the evening I heard 2 slightly different versions of an old classic story my dad tells. I'll call it "the mushroom story!" One version from my uncle and one from Derek, my cousin Brian's son!

The following day we got a great tour of the Hirshorn Museum from my aunt. Then her friend kindly gave us a ride on her "party boat" on their lake. We stayed for a nice dinner with my aunt and uncle after that.
Mitch told you about Thursday and Friday.
Saturday we went back into D.C to spend the day. Our first stop was going to be the Capitol tour. On our way in we noticed several policemen from different states on the train. It turned out they were also on their way to the Capitol. They were going to the annual memorial for fallen police officers. George W. was to be the Key note speaker. We saw he and several others speak. And, as cool as it was to see a president speak, it did not sway our political party views in the least! If nothing else it confirmed them! That day we also went on the Capitol tour, went to see the monuments, (Lincoln, Washington, and the new WW II), and to see the White House.
Today we went to the Smithsonean,( that doesn't look right ),Zoo. Tomorrow off to Virginia Beach and to see Naomi. Boy do my feet need a rest!!!!
