Ivan & Brady Visit DC

My younger brother and his wife paid us a quick visit to DC last week. At very last minute, Brady had a conference to attend in Chicago so before getting to us, they spent two days in Vegas with a visit to the Grand Canyon, a week in Chicago, two days in New York and then three days with us before returning home to Melbourne, Australia.

We had a blast trying to squeeze in as much as we could in the three days they were here. We visited several monuments, a few museums, Potomac Mills Outlets and the mall for last minute shopping.
