Cherry Blossoms Make Everything Better!

Seriously everyone, DC was just what the doctor ordered! After an emotional couple of weeks we were drained in every way a human being could be. But as soon as we stepped on that plane Thursday night everything seemed to just roll right off.

Long time friends Dan and Joanna spoiled us. Every other word out of their mouths was "You are on vacation, we are going to have fun!" And fun we had!

Friday while they were both at work for a while we relaxed...I actually forgot what that word meant. Lounging, reading, and playing the Wii is the best kind of therapy. When they returned home they made us an awesome meal and then treated us to a harbor boat cruise ride.

We got to see the cherry blossoms for the first time!

Saw some of the monuments.

Convinced myself that this helicopter was Marine 1 with Mr. Obama on it.

And of course goofed around like we know best!

On our way home we stopped by the White House.....I wanted to go up and ask for Michelle.

Saturday the girls went and got pampered. A 2 1/2 hour mani/pedi spa treatment.....three words.....oh my god! Massaging chair, scrubs, lotions, the works....heaven! While we were contemplating doing this everyday, the boys went out to the shooting range. When we returned home it was out to DC for a while.

We saw the cherry blossoms in their glory!

And of course, Mr. Lincoln himself!

Then it was time to head out to favorite Brazilian Steakhouse. We all left with a meat baby in every could have rolled me out!

Sunday we were leaving in the morning, so they brought us around Old Town for an scrumptious lunch at the Warehouse.

We loved every second of it and have these two people to thank for an awesome time!!!
