Dominating DC

So far, DC has been fun. We got here in the early afternoon yesterday. The hotel is nice. Here are Jill and Tara checking out our view...We really lucked out because this is what we get to look at during our stay here...The Roof Rock Garden. Awesome. Good thing the room is nice. We met up with my friend from grad school, Greg and went to a great dinner. The service was awful but we had some fun! Greg is one of the funniest people I've ever met so we pretty much laughed the whole time. Here are Jill and Tara with him. I love it when my worlds collide.
Jill and I looking super cool. I'm wearing Jill's glasses. I'm not sure why. Did I mention there was alcohol involved in this dinner?
Today Tara had an all day meeting so Jill and I went into DC to check out the sights. Our first stop was the Holocaust Museum. I've been wanting to go here for awhile now.
It was incredibly moving and interesting. I'm so glad we went.
After that, we headed over to the National Aquarium. Here's Jill looking sly next to the sign. The aquarium was smaller than I thought but it was fun to see how all the creatures.
We are here at the right time because it's Cherry Blossom festival time. The weather was beautiful today and the trees were in full bloom. It's so nice to see spring finally.
And of course our final stop of the day was to the White House. This is the best picture I got of it.
Here we are in front of my future home. :)So that's what we've been doing since we got to DC. As Jill would say, we've been dominating. Tomorrow real conference stuff begins. But I'm sure there will be more fun to be had when I'm not being professional. :)
Hope you all had a nice weekend!

I would love to go to DC sometime in my life. I, too, would like to visit the Holocaust museum. People say that it could take all day to get through it. It sounds as though you are going to have a good time! (minus the conference!) Have fun!

Very good domination, indeed. LOL omg the roof rock garden is one of the funniest things you ever wrote (of many).
I miss you all. Went back to WW Sat and rejoined. I'm feeling better about life this week, so I win, even though I lose for not being there with you all. But, I definitely have been able to catch up on the QT with Tim and Sam this weekend, which was much needed.

This sounds and looks like so much fun! I haven't been to DC in years and would love to spend a few days there. Enjoy the rest of the trip!

looks like a good time! And I do believe that your blog is now complete since you have a picture of Greg Victory on it! I have a great picture of the two of you at ACPA in Philly when we were in grad school - you both look like orange fools! It's SUper!
