Weekend Wrap-Up

Though it was not the most exciting weekend that doesn't mean we didn't make it a blast. Friday we had class from 9:30-4:00 (miserable right?) this made for a very very long day. That night a couple from our professor's ward that had attended Washington Seminar invited us over for swimming and BBQ. They had a beautiful house in the woods, gave us delicious food, and provided us with much entertainment. It was nice to spend that night in a home and not at our stake center house. On our way there our professor locked her keys in her house so we had to all cram into two cars. This led to Sean and I being stuck in the trunk of a mini van. We felt like we were in a scary movie where they stuff you in a trunk and drive you around till you end up in the woods.

Saturday morning was great because I actually got to sleep in a little which has become a rarity for me lately. We are required to do a service project for our class. Two of the kids in our group arranged for us to help out at an elementary school book fair. It wasn't quite the service we were expecting. We went in shifts and my group went from 11-2. Well, they didn't have many costumers and there were way more of us then there were of them so we ended up sitting in chairs talking and playing games for a good 3 hours.
Disclaimer: We did not actually sleep 
When it was finally time for us to leave we grabbed some lunch and watched a little football. Then I set off for a 10 mile run to train for my half marathon. Luckily, it was a beautiful day and it wasn't as hard as the first 10 miler so that was great news!

Saturday night we headed to the national mall to take a look at the monuments. There is not a prettier sight then seeing these monuments at night. It is one of my favorite things about living here in DC. We had a great time walking around and taking pictures. By the end I was absolutely freezing! Fall is here and winter is definitely coming!

The weekend ended with a nice home cooked dinner by our institute missionary couple. Every week they invite people over for dinner and this week I was one of the lucky ones!

Every Vice-President has a bust statue in the Capitol, most reside in the Senate chamber.
