First Ever Trip to Capital for Lyn & Jesse

Working On It
One Big Project!

Dave had been to Washington, DC many times, starting with a family vacation when he was 11. His new job required several trips for him, and each time we wanted Lyn and Jesse to come along for their first visit. Finally a four day class follwed by a long week-end appeared, so we took Jesse out of school, and cashed in a couple Delta vouchers. Dave flew out Sunday night, Lyn and Jesse arrived at BWI Tuesday night. On the following Monday, everybody flew home; Lyn and Jesse to Florida and Dave onto Boise, Idaho. Unfortunately, the Hyatt Bethesda was full, so we stayed instead at the Marriott Bethesda which is less convenient for the Metro but permitted us to use a car and BWI airport. We returned 16 months later and stayed at the Hyatt.without a car.
