and the answer is....:

Samuel cannot come home yet! His packet was sitting on a desk at battalion, and needs more signatures, so his date is now next Wednesday.

Sam and Paul...

It has been a nice visit though! We got here last night...we attempted to go to the grocery store, but ended up at a diner. Then this morning, we HAD to go to the store...bottled water, strawberries, pistachios, a few green peppers, and some peppered turkey lunch meat...for lunch. We had a picnic at the Marine Memorial with Sam.

In the background, the Washington Monument, and some of the tulips gifted to the U.S. from the Netherlands after WWII.

The trees! The springtime loveliness! The contrast of the beauty, and the almost too much.

We walked about 3 and a half miles today. The temperature was perfect, warm and sunny but not overly hot.

Samuel worked half a day, then we picked him up on base, and brought him back here to our hotel. He's watching a WWII documentary with Paul, of course. We went in the hot tub, and had our our room...a rotisserie chicken from the store, veggies, strawberries, and popcorn. :)

It has been fun and relaxing, but tomorrow we have to return Sam to base, pack up some of his stuff, then say goodbye...until next week, when I take another....roadtrip!!!
