One of the first stops was Mt Vernon-George Washington's home.
In front of Mt. Vernon
Next we went to the Pentagon and saw the 9/11 Memorial
Our day at Arlington National Cemetery was incredible. It was such a beautiful, emotional area. It's also the resting place of a guy who went to high school with me.
We toured Arlington House and also saw the changing of the guard in front of the tomb of the unknown soldier. Amazing!
What's a trip to DC without seeing the White House. It really looks bigger on TV. lol!
The night before we saw the Lincoln memorial, it was vandalized. Someone poured paint all over it! Can you imagine? Why? That meant they had it partially closed off because they were trying to remove the paint. This was as close as we could get.
Just as the sun was going down, we made it to the Capital building. I thought this was the prettiest government building that we saw.
On the way home we stopped at Monticello-Thomas Jefferson's home. I loved walking through the gardens and enjoying the breathtaking view.
6 history filled days that none of us will ever forget. I'm so glad we finally made this trip. God bless our wonderful country!
