Back in DC!

While Autumn is in training this week, Kylie and I tagged along to catch up on dentist appointments, shop and get re-Americanized!! Grandpa Ron and Grandma Julie even joined in on the fun. After dragging everyone from store to store and doctor office to doctor office, we took the afternoon to check out the new MLK Jr. monument. We opted to wait until the day AFTER the 50th anniversary of the "I have a dream..." speech to avoid the enormous crowds, although it would have been great to see Obama and Oprah! Here is our restaurant schedule for the week, just in case anyone needs suggestions in the NOVA / DC area:
