Month of May: Part 1

May has been jammed packed with visitors and trips, it's been so much fun to see everyone! We've done so much this month I had to look back at our pictures just to remember everything we did. We'll start off  when my brother Brian flew out to see us the first week of May.  He had a job interview with a fire department in Virginia and decided to stay the week and visit. Did the usual sights in the mall but we also made it to the Library of Congress which I had not been to yet, which is really cool and one of my favorites now. I felt a little guilty because I relied heavily on my brother when we were out because Porter wasn't able to come to everything but he was such a good sport and Harrison really loved being with him.

Another fun thing we did while Brian was here was tour some of the embassies in DC. Every year they have an open house of many of the embassies and you can go sample food, culture, etc. It was pretty cool. So the ones we hit were: Belize, Japan, Turkey, Ivory Coast, Brazil, Bahamas, Haiti....and that was only in 2 hours!! We got there right when it started and by the time we left it was getting pretty packed and the lines were extremely long, so I think we went at the right time. So technically I guess you could say we've been so all these countries since the embassy property is considered part of that country....haha! At the Turkish Embassy we tried turkish delight.....not delightful at all! The moment it went in my mouth I immediately spit it out and had to find some water. Very bitter and gross, and of course Porter loved it.

And we went to a Nationals game. Way fun!! I thought it wouldn't be that great because we had super high seats but it was actually a pretty good view and Harrison really liked it. Plus they came back from down 2 in the bottom of the 9th with 2 outs and 2 was a pretty amazing ending!
