Washington DC Trip

Published by


Hello everyone,

Happy Sunday I hope that everyone had a good week and is enjoying their weekend. It’s been a couple of weeks since I posted my last blog. I was going to post something last week but I had a lot going on and I was also sick. I’m feeling much better now. I’m excited to share what I was up to from two weeks ago. My Husband Matthew and I went to Washington DC. This was a very quick trip. We left on Monday November 11 and came back on Wednesday November 13. So we left early on the Monday morning and got to DC that evening for a surprise dinner for our friend Kim Samuel. It was for her birthday we were both excited to be there for her. We saw her a couple weeks before in Toronto for her symposium which was absoulty awesome. It was so hard to keep it a secret from her but boy was Kim surprised. Anyways the dinner was great. We got to see lots of people we both new and got to meet lots of new people as well. Then the next day it was the annual Special Olympics International board meeting that they do every year. Now my husband Matthew was apart of the International borad for many years and he recently step off of because his term is up. We both went to the board meeting to listen in for about two hours and then after that we got to go tour around the city because after all it was my first time being in DC. We went to the White House, The Washington Monument, The World War ll. Memorial, The Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool, Lincoln Memorial, Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial and also The United States Holocaust Memorial museum. It was definitely a jam packed day but the good thing was that everything was pretty walkable and close by to get too as well. Then later we got back to our hotel for awhile to relax. Then later that night we met up with a few people that we knew from the board and went out for dinner with them. Then the next day we flew back home. It was a very quick trip but I definitely had a great time. Well I hope you enjoyed reading this post today. I will post a few pictures from the trip. Anyways have a good rest of your day!
