Famous things in Virginia and outlaying areas

The wonderful East coast has so much to offer anyone in love with history both American and Church History. It is now most famous in my family for being the place Matthew gets to go and be the best programmer he can be for 3 months.

Matthew leaves the great WARM state of Arizona on January 3rd for 3 months. While I get to stay here and pack up the house and get ready for a big family move at the end of those three months. Hopefully that 3 months will turn into a full year's worth of work so that Kathryn and I can move out there with him and enjoy the wonders of East Coast life.

I've recently been told that all the museums in DC area are all free. I can't wait to go to the Smithsonian and take Kathryn to see Lincoln and well all the great American History places to see. I want her to have a love of her country and history unlike her father. Matthew keeps getting told that VA is such a great place to live because of all the great history every where, in which he laughs and says that is not the selling point here guys. It is for me. And because it's green and something new and exciting to experience.

I'm hoping I'll get to come out there a few times in that 3 months. but we'll see. Maybe I'll even find a month to month lease there that will let us come for 2 months for Feb and Mar and then we'll move all our things. we'll see. So as you can see I'm going to be needing lots of friends this coming few months and lots of fun things to do with Kathryn to keep me busy and not thinking of how much longer Matthew is going to be away. My sister's advice to me who has had her husband work out of town before was to keep yourself busy in service. So I think I'm going to take her word for it. I also thought since watching that movie Julie and Julia I'd learn to cook better. Anyone want to have dinner sometime...

We moved out about a month and a half ago. We love it here in Maryland the DC temple is 25 minutes away. We have been to DC to a few of the Smithsonian museums. We would love to see you. We have a spare room if Matthew needs a place to stay for a while.

The museums ARE great but have a schedule for free days. Otherwise, they can cost over $20. Worth it, for sure, but it's much nicer to pay nothing. We are so tickled for his job. The east coast is all it's cracked up to be, and it's a wonderful place to live! Congrats!
