Arriving: Sat January 17th

Just prior to departing for DC some of my friends stopped by to give me the "ball dress stamp of approval." Thanks Jules and RDK...you sent me off on the adventure of a lifetime feeling confident and excited.
The next morning the Elsmo Four boarded a plane and landed here...
Could this house be cuter? I don't think so. Our friend Meghan and her gorgeous and gracious family hosted us for (almost) the duration of our Inaugural adventure in Silver Spring, MD and we will never be able to repay them. Our arrival was quiet and complimented by a delightful family dinner and some fine wine. We really had no idea what amazing sites were in store for us!After sleeping soundly in comfy beds we awoke early and headed into The District to pick up our event packet and ball tickets. The kids were eager to take in all that Washington DC has to offer!
We found ourselves on Dupont Circle, happened upon a Farmer's Market, and (apples in hand) made our way to The Mayflower Hotel to check in. After identifying ourselves, we were directed past stunning flower arrangements, crystal chandeliers, and a red, white and blue curtain to an elevator. The whole scene had a Wizard of OZ kind of vibe and down we went.
While we waited we were able to sign a book for the Obama Family. We received our inaugural tickets, our parade passes and information on the friends and family day of service....and just a little something we were not expecting....
