We definitely had a touristy weekend! We had two sets of visitors with us, and it was great.
Saturday Brendon and I took my mom and sister to Georgetown for some shopping. Tiffany had some Easter money burning a hole in her pocket, and my mom had never seen my favorite store, Anthropologie. After we had shopped to exhaustion, we took Tiffany, Mom, Fernando, and Sharon (Seminario) on the West Wing tour. They were all thoroughly impressed and got lots of great pictures.
Brendon had to stay behind and work for a while, so we walked over to the Washington Monument to check out the kite festival, and then over to the Jefferson Monument to see all the cherry blossoms. This week is the Cherry Blossom Festival and they look beautiful. Unfortunately, that also means that tourists have taken over our town even more than usual and it is just unbelievably crowded! But still fun.
We thought Mount Vernon was a good Sunday appropriate activity, and we learned about George Washington's heroism and beautiful estate. We were even privileged enough to see his 200 year old dentures, although I'm not so sure that's a privilege! But I guess amazing that they have lasted that long.
After that we packed up my mom and sister and drove them to the airport. We said goodbye to the Seminarios this morning, and Merkley Hotel is closed one day for cleaning until our next guests come tomorrow evening. We really do enjoy having so many visitors!
