If You Come Visit Me, The Government Will Close

I had my second visitor come last week. It was her spring break and I was so glad that I was the choice destination.

We spent the most beautiful spring day DC has gotten walking around the monuments. It was so beautiful neither of us wanted to take the metro, so we just walked. Our legs were pretty sore the next day, but soaking up the sun was worth it.

We visited a friend in Havre De Grace Maryland, and discovered that Maryland does indeed have the cutest random little towns.
Snow was predicted for Monday and I was so hoping for one last snow day. The government closes when DC gets too much snow, and if the government closes for a snow day, my work also closes for a snow day. We got our last snow day, so I had an extra day to hang out all day with Erica...except we didn't realize one thing. When the government closes, so do almost all of the museums. Only two were open, so we visited both. The Portriat Gallery has this beautiful atrium area that looked so cool with snow covering the roof.
We got a lot of walking in again in the freezing snowy city, but it was a great way to spend a low key St. Patrick's day; looking like a babushka. This is the second time someone has come to visit me and the government shut down. One of the benefits of living in DC, is that even if the government is shut down, there are still lots of things to do and see.

I feel like that would be such a fun place to visit!! Even if the government might be shut down. :)

I so would want to visit DC and and all the museums. However, sounds like I'd have to purposely avoid you in order to keep everything running smoothly...
