New York City, Washington DC & more

DSC05297Time is just flying by. Anneliese is only here until Thursday this week, can't believe it's almost been two weeks already. We have definitely been keeping busy though. 

Wednesday & Thursday last week we spent in NYC. On Wednesday we did all the uptown sights (Empire State Building, Guggenheim, Central Park, 5th Ave, Rockefeller Center, Times Square, Hard Rock Cafe, Grand Central, etc.) and Thursday we did everything downtown (Staten Island Ferry to see the Statue of Liberty, Wall Street, Brooklyn Bridge, South Street Seaport, SoHo, Chinatown, Little Italy, etc.) Friday she stayed home and relaxed a little while we went to work.

Saturday we left for Washington DC. Managed to fit a lot of stuff into our 2 nights there too. Walked all around the mall and saw a bunch of the monuments (Capitol Building, Washington, Lincoln Monument, White House, Roosevelt, Vietnam, Korean War, 2nd World War, Martin Luther King Monument...) Had dinner at the Grillfish in Dupont Circle. Then Sunday we went to the zoo and had lunch at the Hard Rock afterwards. Sunday night we saw a baseball game at Nationals Park which was fun. Then Monday we had breakfast at Eggspectations in Silver Springs, MD and then headed home to CT. 

Today it's back to work for Mike and me. Tomorrow we will leave work a little early and head down to NYC so she can see New York by night as well. Will do Times Square and probably also the Empire State Building. 

Mail Update: Received a letter from Jessica/DE.
