You went to DC AND New York over spring break?

Was the Washington Monument undergoing restoration? I noticed the scaffolding in your picture.

Yep.
G/F wanted visit her brother in D.C., works for a senator and last time I was there was when I was a baby.
Neither of us have been to NYC so we figured we'd stop over at my mom at MICA in Baltimore, then head up to NYC for a few nights.

They were finishing up, and according to her brother, we picked a good time as the Capitol is about to go under for some work that's due to take 3 years.



I loved both cities, definitely want to go back earlier in the winter. The day after we left NYC, they got about 8"+ of snow and she has yet to see any. She did have fun making balls of ice/slush and throwing them at a sign in DC but just doesn't compare to a flurry.
