Oh. My. Goodness! When Trav told me a few weeks ago that he was going to Washington DC for a work conference I didn't even hesitate to say I was going with him. We somehow worked it all out to have the kids looked after and we were able to go for a whole week! No kids! I'm still totally shocked that we were able to pull this thing off, but I'm also really glad we did. Trav had never been there before and I went many many years (like 15) ago with my parents so it's not like it was fresh on my mind. I cannot thank friends and family enough for letting this happen!!I have about a million pictures, so this is my gift to you.
(I'm totally kidding) Okay, here we go!
We made it all the way over to Jefferson! It was beautiful too!
We need more pictures of the Washington Monument. It's so pretty!
Even though we could barely walk the next day, we hobbled out to go see the Natural History Museum. Again....way too much to see, but it was totally awesome.
We, the Pizza.
We thought the evacuation map was funny. We are out in the middle of nowhere! That's helpful....
On Sunday we were able to go to church which was amazing. We went back to the mall to take a quick picture of the white house. (Trav's co-worker wanted to get a picture of it.) Then it was over to the Holocaust museum. W.O.W. So powerful.
The first day we went to Freidricksburg. It's a cool Civil war town where you can drive through the battlefields.
Here's cute Felicia and cute Carter.
The next day we went to see the Pentagon and the September 11 Memorial they had there.
The last day we had there we went to see Ford's Theater. It's still an actual working theater, they just have Lincoln's box marked off. It was actually really cool to see (especially after reading 'Killing Lincoln.")
Thanks for letting me tag along on your trip, Trav. :) I love DC.
