Washington, D.C.


We are back from our weekend trip to Washington, D.C. We had a lovely visit with Leah and Aaron and managed to see a lot for such a short visit. Here are the highlights of our two days spent in our country's capital...

We started off our visit with a trip to the Natural History Museum. While there we saw dinos, marine life, insects and live butterflies.



We walked by the Washington Memorial



One of my favorite things we did was seeing the White House. I find it so pretty and gracious in a rather simple way.


I was also rather keen on going to see the Lincoln Memorial. It is just magnificent! Not to mention the view from the top of the stairs.


Aaron had the brilliant idea to fly kites on the lawn in front of the Washington Memorial. The children loved it.



We also made a stop at the Capitol Building and the Supreme Court.



Just in case you were wondering, there was a lot of this...

... and this.

We didn't even think to bring a stroller with us and it was a lot of walking!

  1. Sure thought of you enjoying DC. Beautiful historical places. I'm partial to the pic of Bryce and the colorful kite with the Washington Monument in the background. He made such a great replica in high school which makes it extra special.
