Travel Log -- Day 4

Thursday was full! We were able to spend a lot of time with family over a light lunch of green and fruit salads before driving into D.C. for my cousin's wedding rehearsal. We have been advised by fellow Oklahomans to avoid driving in D.C., but that was where we needed to be, so we went -- trusting our GPS to get us there safely and in good time. We found that navigating D.C. is possible -- just difficult -- and a GPS cannot eliminate human error. Unexpected detours continue to be part of our big city experience.

We saw a part of the city we did not see last year when we took the metro and stayed near the capitol and monuments. Our drive took us through charming streets that were nevertheless confined, tight, and traffic packed. We drove down Pennsylvania Avenue, back behind the Library of Congress and Supreme Court, and into residential neighborhoods.

The rehearsal went well. I was able to fellowship with my cousin Christal and her husband Andrew among others and meet members of the bride's family and friends. The evening was joyful, and the food was delicious (I had salmon)!

Hi Elizabeth!

Salmon is such a treat when it is fresh -- and not overcooked! How was the preparation?

I love you!

Dad, it was super, well done, tasty, and moist. I chose it because we don't get it at home. We all had salmon two nights later at Grandma's birthday, and it was even better than the first time!

I am glad you have enjoyed the updates!
