A visit to DC!

For Don's birthday yesterday we drove into Washington DC. We didn't leave home until 11:00 am and it took us an hour and a half to get there. Not bad! It was cold out - about 35 degrees but we managed to walk to see the Washington monument, the reflecting pool, the Lincoln memorial, The World War II memorial and the Vietnam memorial before heading back to the metro to get to our car. All around were workers getting ready for the big day - Obama's inauguration. It was a great day - we are all thrilled to be living so close to our nation's capital and can't wait to go back - we have a big list of things we want to do there!

After we got back to Richmond, we went out to dinner at a Japanese Steak House to celebrate Don's birthday. Yum!

I am so happy that you and your family are back together and are able to "explore" Virginia together.
