Washington D.C

Wow! That pretty much sums up how I felt at the end of Saturday. You see, we used to live in Sunny Florida, just a short little drive over to Disney World and we spent our entire 2008 visiting Disney and all those magical characters. When we left Florida, I was saddened that our children would not get to experience that for 2009. Kya has been saying she was tired of Disney and wanted to do Sea World anyway. And, yet she and Autumn could not wait to see the White House. Well, let me just say I was blown away at all that D.C. has to offer and am so happy to be living here. I grow to love this area of the country more all the time. Besides Lily screaming all day long, we very much enjoyed our day. :-)

First, we strolled by the Washington Monument. We need to return because Autumn very much wanted to ride up to the top but we could not do it this day.

We made our way around the outside of the White House. This is the South Lawn.

And here is the front lawn.

And then we walked over to Freedom Square for a photo op with the U.S. Capitol Building behind us. (Later we drove around the building.)

Before leaving D.C. for the day, we stopped by the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History.

It was such a neat day and we can't wait to go back often!
