But it was so worth it.
Mt. Vernon, The National Zoo, Smithsonian Castle, Air and Space Museum, Natural History Museum, American History Museum, American Indian Museum, Lincoln's Memorial, National Building Museum,
The Holocaust Museum, The White House Tour.

Unbelievably awesome friends.
We came, we saw, we perspired, we slept hard.
And now. Far from the madding crowd and dear friends, we have returned to dog slobber, cow kisses, cat kneadings,
cooking, laundry, weed-pulling, and grass-mowing.
Good to be home.
