The first day I was in town, I went over to Catholic University of America to visit my friend Katelyn and to ask her to be a bridesmaid (she said yes!). They have a beautiful basilica on campus, as seen below. Here is the basilica, the alter, and one of the many shrines off the the sides.
We went into Geortown and just went shopping, although we only bought ice cream. He're me at the mall:
Capitol Steps perform at the conference (love them!), and bond with some fellow Honors students. There were definitely some ups and downs to the trip, but overall it was an enjoyable experience. And finally, I'd like to leave you with a beautiful picture of the Capitol building at night.
