Hey Jane, thanks for the bikini compliment and the photo compliment.
I hope your family has a great trip to DC. There are so many great sites to see and so many fun things to do. I am actually about 45 minutes outside of DC in a little tiny town called Round Hill, Va. Close enough to DC without having to be in the middle of it all. I like living at the bottom of the Blue Ridge Mountains and having beautiful views to look at instead of buildings.
I hope you get some good southern hospitality from the Northern Virginians and Washingtonians you come across. Seeing that you said you are staying at Embassy Suites in Chevy Chase, I assume you will be staying in Chevy Chase, Maryland. That is a pretty neat little "city" too. Have a great trip, and if you listen carefully, you may hear Punta Rebels blowing from in from Virginia.
