We finally made it!!!! We arrived in Philadelphia on April 24th and our apartments are super nice and very spacious(finally! good apartments). The surrounding area is so pretty and green; it sort of reminds me of Indiana.
We had some time before Matt had to start working so we visited Washington DC for a day. We saw most of the monuments and went to the spy museum. We also saw some super slueth security guard pacing the rooftop of the whitehouse. DC is less than two hours away from where we live so we plan on visiting often on sunday afternoons.
