D.C.

We hit the ground running. We knew we had four days to cover as much ground as humanly possible. Marilyn had been there for eight days last year going day and night, and she didn't see everything she wanted to. She had made out a well planned itinerary for us to get the most out of our time though. By the end of the first two days we were grabbing the Advil. The second two days we continued the pace but it was easier on us because we had a couple of "riding" tours. Although it was impossible to get everything in that we wanted to, we did not feel cheated by any means. I think we truly wore our kiddos out! 

Some of the highlights included........

Washington Monument
Jefferson Memorial
Lincoln Memorial
Arlington Cemetery Tour
White House Tour
Capitol Tour
Holocaust Museum
National Museum of American History
National Air and Space Museum
Union Station
City Tour
Mount Vernon
Old Alexandria



Here are a couple of my favs from the National Museum of American History.

Julia Child's Kitchen


Dorothy's Slippers


At the Lincoln Memorial


Capitol Hill


Around Town


Almost forgot I had worked on this post (before my surgery).
Again...thanks for your prayers and emails.
