Last weekend was amazing- Peter came to visit me again! On Friday, we stayed in because it was slightly rainy here in DC.  We watched the World Cup game and then cooked dinner together (one of our favorite things to do).  On Saturday, we went to the zoo!

It is interesting to think how 6 weeks ago I landed here in D.C a few days before the internship began and I was able to run around and explore. The days before moving into the dorms I remember imagining what the summer would look like.
