So this weekend I went to Delaware(on Fri) to see Chele and PA on Sat to see Greg and lots of others. On the way my friend and I realized we were going to pass DC. I have never been there and we were ahead of schedule so we decided to stop. It was beautiful. We got to see the Washington monument, the Lincoln Memorial-and the most meaningful to me-the Vietnam Memorial.(I tell you, seeing all those names made me cry.). Then we went to the White House. As the cute cop is taking our picture in front of the White House a group pf 15 HOT cadets from the Merchant Marine Academy in Long Island stop and ask us to take their picture. Of course we said no problem-they then did the what is your name where are you from thing(to which as Jordan says I replied no thanks I am engaged). Then they asked us to take a picture with them-so I am now the proud owner of a picture of me, my best friend and 15 hot guys in uniform in front of the White House. The moral of this story-unplanned side trips rock and take them whenever you can.
