We're back from our week long trek to Washington D.C. We had a great time seeing all the wonderful sites, taking in all the history and enjoying all that this wonderful city had to offer. It was my second visit and my son's first. We saw so much but yet there were some things we didn't get to see. We really enjoyed the Air and Space Museum as well as the American History Museum. I LOVE Mount Vernon and we were able to go there by a lovely river cruise up the Potomac, it was a lot of fun...and on the way back Jakob was able to be my guide on the metro! We met some lovely people from all over the world while touring the various sites, everyone was so friendly, it was really fun visiting with friends from Australia, England, France as well as Indiana right here in the good ole' USA! We walked our legs off too...espeically at Arlington National Cemetery, which is beautiful but has a lot of hills...next time we will take a tour bus :o) Our hotel was right down from the Capital so we had some lovely night views and the weather was just perfect...mid 80's each day...a cool wave from the 100 degree temps here in Texas! LOL! School starts tomorrow and we are all set...ready to start back to a routine, this summer sure flew by. I hope to visit with you all again this weekend and share some more scrappy stuff!
