Spent two full days in DC doing some vacation sightseeing. It was over a 100 degrees both days so we were wiped out! It was so worth it though. We’re such history buffs and our national treasures are meaningful to the boys now.
I asked the fam what their favorite thing to see in DC was…L said the Lincoln display (including his top hat) at the Smithsonian, M said the Air Space Museum, hubby and I both say Arlington National Cemetary (esp. the changing of the guard and Lee house for me). I had no idea how immense the cemetary was.
I had an uncle who died in Vietnam before I was born – I appreciate hubby snapping this picture.
We drove in each day of our visit and took the subway – that was an experience. Two days just wasn’t long enough to see all we wanted. Next time we’ll plan ahead and try to see the White House and I want to spend an entire day at Mt. Vernon. I am thankful though for seeing what we did and for the spontaneity of the trip. My family rocks!
