Friday night after a scrumptious dinner at Ray's Hell Burger (its sister restaurant, or maybe I should say brother, Ray's the Steaks, is a really swanky restaurant in town. They take all the unused tenderloin and ground it into burgers. Yum.), Lauren and I dropped Joey off (it was past his bedtime) and headed to the W Hotel right next to the White House.

Saturday we went over to President Woodrow Wilson's house and took a very thorough tour. The docent was very nice and exceptionally informed. President Wilson's second wife, Edith, maintained almost everything original from the house, so it was really neat to see. I especially loved the old, concert grand Steinway piano - I wish I'd played in the last few years so I could have played something on that when the docent asked.
|Just gorgeous - Joey said he thought it was prettier than the Sistene Chapel.|

|French drawing room - the English drawing room had the same beautiful gilt.|
|This is where the concert took place. These pictures don't even being to do the Anderson House justice.|
