Steve had just returned the day before from a "Ski Week" trip to DC with his wife and his three kids. He joined with 200 NAIOP reps (he's president-elect of the Inland Empire chapter) to meet with congressmen on issues like transportation, tax, and energy policy, then with family to see the sights like above. Oh, and not just the usual ones, but the President returning to the White House by helicopter after his after his trip to Florida for golf with Tiger Woods, then his motorcade sweeping by after the State of the Union, and one night (perhaps most exciting of all for the kids) a dusting of snow.
