We took a trip with Grandma & Grandpa to Washington DC this year. We had a few things that we wanted to do including visiting the Holocaust Museum, a Smithsonian Museum, the White House, the Washington Monument, Arlington Cemetery, and many of the memorials that the city had to offer. We had a lot of laughs, some being at the expense of others such as Grandma getting her bag caught in the door of the Metro train and everyone freaking out 🙂 It was a great trip filled with fun memories.

Day 1 – The White House – We had a short day to make a quick visit into town and visitedÂ the White House
Day 2 – Visits to the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum, the George Washington Monument, WWII Memorial, Vietnam Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, Korean War Memorial, MLK Memorial, FDR Memorial, and the Jefferson Memorial. Needless to say, our feet were sore at the end of the day.
