As I'm sure you know, the U.S. federal government kindly decided to shut down for my vacation. This had the benefit of reducing the traffic and making parking easy to find, but most of the cool things in D.C. are federally run (most of the museums, all the monuments, etc). However, we persevered! We walked Embassy Row, toured the National Cathedral, took our lunch cruise, and walked around the White House. Catherine's daughter wants to be an architect, so she went to the National Building Museum with her dad while Catherine and I went to a bookstore to look at college guidebooks.

I meant to get more, but I'm terrible at remembering to take photos. Catherine and her family took lots, and I'm sure she'll email some to me when she gets back home.
Ever had vacation plans go awry? What happened?
