The movers came on Tuesday to pack us up. Robert spent the two days chit chatting with the movers while I did errands, had a play date, and took the kids swimming to stay out of their way. By the end of the first day they still hadn't finished packing us all up, so the next day they had a little more packing to do before they could load the truck. And they got there a little late. And it rained half the day. So they were there for a long time the second day.
Wednesday night we stayed at the historic Renaissance Mayflower down the street from the White House, and the next day Robert went back to the townhouse early and did most of the cleaning while I entertained the kids again at the hotel until Robert came to pick us up in the rental car. The one time we actually could have used our two cars and they were halfway across the country by then! This is Julia pointing to our townhouse, the "red house" while Robert was inside doing the walk through with the new owners (our original landlord sold the home the last month we were there, so we had a new landlord for one week and we had our walk through with them. It was kind of weird.)
Julia understood pretty well what was going on, she's smart like that.
After that we spent Thursday night in DC again. The next morning we went to breakfast at Founding Farmers, and I mention this because it was delicious! If you are ever in DC I would highly recommend it, but you must make a reservation or come during an non-busy time. We went to breakfast at like 10:00 am so most people were already done with breakfast by then and the lunch crowd hadn't come in yet. We tried for dinner the night before without reservations and it was like an hour and a half wait, so we went somewhere else.
Then we left DC and Virginia for good and headed up to Baltimore, MD!
