Family comes to visit

With Kay and Annette, overlooking DC from Arlington Cemetery

Cousins Kay and Annette flew out on Friday afternoon for the weekend. We’ve done a whirlwind tour of DC since they arrived and it’s been so fun. We didn’t waste a minute, and got started soon after they arrived. We’ve walked all over DC to see many of the memorials and museums. One of the highlights was Arlington National Cemetery on Saturday morning, where we saw the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns – a very moving experience.

Saturday night, after a nice dinner at Harry’s, John took us on a night tour of DC where we saw the White House beautifully lit up.

During the day, we’ve been to the Capitol, the Native American Museum, National Gallery of Art, Natural History Museum, monuments and more! And more to come today…!

We also had a great time with Phillip, Michele, Alise and Andrew last weekend. We met them near Union Station for dinner last Sunday night at Capitol City Brewing Company. Monday night we drove into Georgetown for a dinner at a great Italian restaurant. For photos, click here.

All of our visitors have laughed with us at the phenomenon of Georgetown Cupcake, a cupcake shop in Georgetown, where every time we drive by, there are hoards of people in a line well out the door, waiting to buy…yes, cupcakes.

During the week, John and I had our formal celebration of his Hebrew success with a nice dinner at Smith and Wollensky’s.

On Friday, I met our Hebrew teachers and students at a synagogue in Rockville, Maryland, for their new year’s service. It was fun to hear the Hebrew, and I had Wolfe Blitzer sitting just a few rows ahead of me.
