Jill and Michael should move to DC!

Jill and Michael came into town to visit us for a whole week. We explored DC all week long. Check it out:



Jill and I before a Metro ride – all bundled up for a cold day!



This is at the American History Museum in an old first-generation elevator…



Mike is so handsome – I can’t resist that guy!



I love candid pictures where I don’t look goofy…



Fake people are HI-larious! Ok, not really, but aren’t we convincing?



This is a timeline of Thomas Edison’s life, and I am pointing to the time where he was likely writing letters to my Grandpa.

Wow, houses for $13,000?? I’ll take two!!



The sunset was beautiful that night!





Jill and Michael… awww…



Still Floridians at heart!



Fuzzy, but cute! Lincoln, Jill, and me!



Ok, so on New Year’s Eve, it snowed for literally about a minute or two before the high winds blew it away. This is Jill and me experiencing the snow in our pajamas!



Jill looks like Carmen San Diego…



Jill and I just can’t go on!! 



“Escalump: person who becomes a human speed bump by suddenly stopping at the top or bottom of metro escalator.”



img_4615We went to the Capitol Visitors’ Center on the windiest day of the year. The clouds rolled by so fast!



The Capitol dome.


img_4651I like this chandelier in the Capitol



Pre-ice skating



The ice skating rink in Reston was much dirtier and slippier than the one by the Sculpture Garden in downtown DC. This is me trying not to fall. Mike and I skated hand in hand at times, and I felt like a high schooler during “couples skate” at the rink. Except this time, I had a cute boy by my side. 😉



Michael and Mike look like they’re holding hands…haha!




We went to Cosi in Reston, where they have make your own smores. Michael likes his marshmellow burnt!

img_4689S’mores… yum!





img_4695Mike is sad that the fire burned out


We took a two-day trip to New York City (a 4-hour road trip) on Jan 2-3, but that will have to be a separate post! Stay tuned!

    I agree. Mike and Jill seem like a good fit for Northern Virginia. My main question is why aren’t they on their way up here already?

    Adam, A good question indeed. *Puts on teacher face and looks over proverbial glasses at Jill* Jill, we’re waiting for an answer, young lady…

    😉 Hehe…
