Our family just returned from a wonderful vacation in our nation's capital, Washington DC. Being from Washington State, we kept having to refer to the 'other' Washington!
There is so much to see and do in this wonderful city, and I'm sure we only scratched the surface, but it was fantastic. Here are a few pictures from our trip:
We were lucky enough to have a tour guide, my sister in law lives in Maryland, right outside of DC, so she was kind enough to show us around (And lend us some Metro Passes!)
Here are the kids with their Aunt Eileen in front of the Smithsonian Castle
We missed the majority of the cherry blossoms, but the tulips were beautiful all over town
It is hard to describe the emotions and feelings you get from standing in front of the War Memorials. Such a sacrifice these men and women gave for all of us to enjoy the lifestyle we have.

We saw many more things, but I don't want to bore you too much!! If you ever get the opportunity to visit DC, I highly recommend it. It will reinforce your pride in being an American, even with all the crazy politics!
Thanks for stopping in!
