I’ve spent quite a bit of time in the past few weeks, planning a return trip to DC. I need to get away again, and just let some of the things that’s going on at home go, even if for just a few days. Last time was a spur of the moment trip–a trip to see if it would be worth planning tours and such, which of course it would, but the reasoning fit perfectly at the time. I had no idea where to begin, but I got word from a friend that to plan a tour of the White House, you have to contact your Congressional Representative’s office, and they can set it up for you. I had already had tickets purchased to tour the Washington Monument, but while setting up other tours, they can easily move that time around to fit the scheduling. I was excited on Monday when I got a confirmation email with all of the tours and times that we are set up for: Washington Monument, White House, Supreme Court, Library of Congress, and the Capital.
Who would have guessed the east coast would experience an earthquake yesterday, which unfortunately looks like it will knock one of the tours off the list.

Well that’s a big bummer, as that was one that I was looking the most forward to, but on the bright side, the Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial is now open to the public.
