Eventually each couple went their own way for an afternoon of downtime, and later meeting up for dinner at Rock Bottom Brewery.

Tomorrow the cousins join us for the service at the cemetery. We are hoping to go a couple hours early to visit the JFK/RFK memorials, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the other highlights of this amazing place. I know it will be a somber day. It is going to be tough for everyone to say good bye to Wanda. We only knew her for a few years, but she was certainly a special woman that we will never forget. Later in the day we will have dinner with the close to 40 family members attending and in the evening will get a private tour of the Eisenhower Executive Office Building (formerly the State, War, & Navy Building). It now houses the ceremonial office of the Vice President, among other executives. Quin's ancestor, Richard von Ezdorf was the primary interior designer. I believe that throughout the years a lot of his work has been painted over, changed, etc. but was reclaimed not too long ago. Looking forward to the family history lesson tomorrow!
Now our dogs are tired and I am hoping to get in a few minutes or so of reading time and to catch up with Olympic happenings. We'll actually get to sleep in a bit and for that I will be very grateful. We have made it through another homeless day, and another day closer to our new home.
