Well, as luck would have it, we missed the Pope in D.C. by a few hours.  The good news is that we got to see Emily, James, Randi, John and Hind.  I think seeing 5 out of 6 of our favorite people was well worth the trip.

First up was a trip to see the new building that Emily’s organization, Sultan Qaboos Cultural Center, moved into this year.  It was gorgeous and has a balcony that I covet!

After that, we dined at Founding Farmers, which is always a delicious treat.  The gnocchi I shared with Emily was downright decadent.

Friday found us checking out Emily’s home, doing a bit of shopping and lunching at Matchbox Pizza.  That evening was a trip to the National baseball game against Philadelphia.  A good time was had by all even with the Nationals losing the game.

On Saturday we started the day with a walking tour of Georgetown.  The tour was named “Mansions, Shanties and Cemeteries”.  It was fabulous and the guide was very entertaining.  Here are some photos:

Later Saturday we headed out to the D.C. University of Arkansas alumni watch party for the Razorback — Texas A&M game.  We had a lovely time, though, sadly, the Razorbacks lost.  We did get to spend the evening with Randi Butler, a  favorite friend from Tulsa.  She and James went to high school together so we have known her for many years.

Sunday we went to brunch and then met up with Randy’s nephew, Jon, and his friend Hind.

After an early dinner and visiting, we took a walk by the White House.

One thing I know for sure is that D.C. is pricey!  I thought this place might be the answer:

Sadly, the trip had to end and we flew off into the sunset.  Thanks Emily, James, Jon, Hind and Randi for helping make this an unforgettable trip!

So where to next?

    Wow, what a wonderful looking trip. Sorry you missed the Pope, but you did get to see some VIP’s it looked like (Emily, James and grew)

    And you used the word “decadent”.

    Glad you all had fun. Great pictures as always

    Oh this looks like fun was had by all! I love DC. So great to see where Emily works. I almost didn’t recognize my own brother! It’s been too long. Thanks for sharing all these great photos & family news Cathy. I love the old cemetery, in fact there is an old family cemetery in SE Missouri I want to go in search of…Where was the pottery at the museum from?
