Spring Break in D.C.

At BYU, we never had Spring Break. Cornell does not hate all holidays though! We had a very intense Spring Break in Washington D.C. It was completely full of sight-seeing and playing with long-lost friends! It was so much fun and we are already looking forward to next year!

The goal was to earn more money on this trip than we spent. It didn't end up working that way but we were close! The grand total of this vacation was...
$38.32!!

How in the world would you earn money on vacation?!?!?! Those are the kind of trips that I need to be taking! I'm super jealous that you get a spring break- wish I had one :)

I am a little jealous you got to spend more time there. You guys got to see many more fun things then we did! It is really funny we never ran into each other last Saturday though.:) Or maybe we did and didn't know it!

Wow that looks like it took forever to do. You did so much more than we did. I am glad you got to see everything. Good job on all the layouts. We are so glad we could at least hang out one of the days!

Wow! I'm seriously impressed with all you were able to do! You packed it in! And how did we not run into each other?! I'm laughing at the blacksmith picture at Mount Vernon because we saw the exact same guy doing the exact same thing... but somehow we didn't see you. Glad you all had fun.
