I finally got to meet another of my long-time Internet friends! Jen and I have been friends online since around 2000. She and her son Ted have been staying with me while they are visiting colleges. Here we are enjoying some nice, hot Russian tea:
Jenny and I had a great time this weekend exploring the city with 3 of her friends (now my friends, too!) from work. They were a little early for the full cherry blossom experience, but we had fun nonetheless.
Some photo highlights:
We did find SOME blossoms . . . near Starbucks!
Stopped in at the American History Museum so Jenny could take counting lessons from an expert (sorry so dark):
I finally got to visit the National Archive!
When it rains . . . it's in my dining room! We are still working out the kinks in the new house, and it turns out we need to find a plumber. Something has gone wrong in the upstairs hall bathtub:
Reflective selfie (hi, Kim!):
The Executive Office Building sure looks pretty at night:
Our whole group, relaxing after hiking at least 8 miles in one day:
