Congress was in recess this week, so it was not as busy in the office.  On Tuesday, the other interns and I were able to take the Hood and Emergency Training Course, required for all Hill Staff and Interns.  It turned out to be both informative and pretty interesting, since we got to hear about all the safety procedures, as well as notable incidents and some entertaining false alarm stories.  Katherine and I also had lunch with Jennifer Greenamoyer, at a Thai restaurant Capital South.  We got to share what we’ve been doing at work, learn what’s been going on at AIP, and our plants for the next month.

For the 4th of July weekend, I met up with a bunch of my family down in North Carolina.  We had a big pig roast, cookout, and ate a ton of food!  Since we were on the Perquimans River, near the Albemarle Sound, we got to go kayaking, boating, and fishing.  It was nice to hang out and catch up with some of my family that I hadn’t seen in a while.  On Saturday, we went to Nags Head Beach.  It was so much fun to go shopping, try some local restaurants, and watch fireworks over the water.
