We have a friend, Reed, who works as a science advisor in the White House. He was nice enough to give a few of us a tour the night after Christmas. It was a rainy night in the city, although we had gotten snow back at the farm. We all met for dinner at Founding Farmers (yum!) along with Reed's wife, Jen (who I hadn't seen in 10 years!) and their two daughters.
The Executive Office building directly across the street from the White House, all decorated for the holidays.
We weren't allowed to take any photos inside, but we snapped away at the doorway. We got to see the Oval Office (smaller than I thought) and all the recent photos of Obama and family by the presidential photographer.
The press room was very quiet, not a creature was stirring.
Such a nice evening in Washington, spent with family and friends, visiting the house of our president, where big decisions are made for our country. May Peace be with us all.
