Andrew had a lot of airline miles/hotel points from his travels to and from England last year. So of course we spent them post-haste on a fabulous trip to Washington D.C.! We stayed at an amazingly beautiful hotel right across the street from the White House.
Seriously. The nicest hotel in which I have ever stepped foot. In the past, we have stayed in Bethesda and rode the metro for a while in order to get downtown. This time, being right downtown already was amazing! The view from our hotel window was beautiful, and it took seconds to walk to the White House, Ford's Theatre, and other sight-seeing places.
Grace especially loved wearing the complimentary bathrobes....we were quite spoiled :)

"Faith in something greater than ourselves enables us to do what we have said we'll do, to press forward when we are tired or hurt or afraid, to keep going when the challenge seems overwhelming and the course is entirely uncertain." -Gordon B. Hinckley
