The Parental Visit

My parents came to visit this weekend; we had so much fun! They flew in Wednesday around midnight, and we left for the airport at six this morning...so we only had a few days to squeeze in all our sightseeing. All our photos are here

Day 1: Mom, Dad and I took the Metro into the city and stopped by work to say hi to everyone. Then we did "the loop"; saw the White House, Washington Monument, WWII Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, and Vietnam Memorial.

Day 2: We toned it down a little this day. Joe joined us for a trip to a few Smithsonian museums, and then we introduced the parents to the goodness that is Five Guys.

Day 3: Between Marta (GPS) and Google Map directions, we had an easy drive to the Iwo Jima Memorial, Arlington Cemetery, and the Pentagon Memorial. Joe also drove us by his old house and schools.

We also had tons of fun playing card/dice games, watching Jeopardy, and looking up exciting facts on Wikipedia. The weather was amazing all weekend, and the parents were great sports learning how to ride the metro and walking everywhere. We miss them already! Love you guys!
