There were fun hotel pools.
|Our rainy day found us at a hotel that had an indoor pool. Score!|
There was a really nice hike at a state park outside of Morgantown.

But then we got to our friends' house outside of DC and we kicked the fun up a notch.
Our first full day here we made our "DC" day. We left early in the morning for the mall, where we took in the Lincoln Memorial, Reflecting Pool, Korean War Memorial, WWII Memorial, and MLK Memorial.

|MLK Memorial (duh)|
From there we made our way to the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History.
|At the sculpture park where we ate lunch.|
The dinosaur exhibit was closed, but the rest was pretty cool.
|She's never looked better. JK.|
|The grown ups.|
|Mawrters and future Mawrters|
|Another new baby!|
I've said it before and I'll say it again - I feel so very very lucky to have so many good friends who have taken us to explore their parts of the country. It's been so wonderful to catch up and get to know their families. I only hope that one day I can find some way to repay everyone for the incredible gifts they've given us.
I know we have been on the road for almost 6 weeks, but I actually really can't believe that tomorrow we head to our last stop - NYC. We're going to see Matilda on Broadway, see some friends old and new, have lunch in Chinatown, see the Met, and check out the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. I'll be sure to report on all those adventures as well.
