Our Nation's Capital

We spent a fun filled week in Washington DC back in March, as well as a few days in Virginia with friends. We enjoyed being tourists in our nation's capital,
visiting many of the presidential monuments, (Jefferson Memorial)
war memorials, the Capital building, the Supreme Court building, the Library of Congress, Arlington National Cemetery, Mount Vernon, and much more. (Washington Memorial)

We met up with friends while we were there and enjoyed some sightseeing with them as well. One of our favorite sights were the Cherry Blossom Trees beginning to bloom all along the National Mall - breathtaking!! One thing's for sure, there is too much history there to see in one visit. So we know we will return!! This trip made us proud to be Americans.

You can see our pictures from this trip on my flickr page:
