my week in washington, d.c. (part one)


for a while now, ryan and i have been talking about taking a trip to washington, d.c. but we never seem to find the time to get there.  so, i was really excited when i found out that i had to attend a conference for work that was going to be held in d.c. this fall.      

i spent the past week in d.c. at the conference and i just got home this weekend.  ryan couldn't go to d.c. with me, but i still had a ton of fun by myself.  between conference workshops and sessions, i had the opportunity to get out and explore the city quit a bit.  even though i was in d.c. in the midst of the government shutdown, i was still able to see many famous landmarks and monuments around the city.

 ^the u.s. capitol building^
 ^the washington monument (covered in scaffolding)^
 ^the lincoln memorial^
 ^the library of congress^
 ^the white house^
 ^the lafayette statue in lafayette square^
 ^the u.s. treasury building^
^the sherman monument in sherman plaza^

love, laurie

We live close to D.C., but hardly ever make it down there. Glad you were able to enjoy it.
