Washington DC

This past week Brian and I went to Washington DC on a 'business' trip. Brian passed all of his tests and obtained his CPCU. This is a big deal in the insurance business. They have a huge convention to celebrate. They also had a lot of classes and seminars, but Brian only had to go hear a couple of speakers. They were actually pretty good. Joan Lunden and General Stanley McCrystal were the two speakers. We then spent the rest of the time sightseeing and touring DC. I was exhausted each day, but it was so much fun!
