Washington D.C.

A couple weeks ago we were able to go to the capital with Alisha's family. It was a good trip other than the rain.

When we first go there it was pretty clear but muggy. We got landed around 4pm and decided to go to the national mall on the way to Manassus, VA, where we were staying.

These first few pictures are from the first day we were there.

Below is the WWII memorial.

This is the Lincoln Memorial.

We stayed on the mall until after it got dark and we were able to see some of the monuments at night which was pretty cool.

This is the Jefferson Memorial.

The Lincoln Memorial.

The next day we went back to the National Mall and it rained almost the entire day. Alisha and I were glad we bought umbrellas and rain coats for the trip, but it wasn't enough to keep our feet from getting soaked.

Alisha and I ended up being dropped off on the west side of the mall so that we could wait in line for tickets to the holocaust museum.

This mean that we had to trek through the elements all the way to the east side of the mall when Alisha's parents found out that everyone need to be together to get tickets to the capital.

After we got the tickets we went to the Library of Congress and the Supreme Court while we were waiting to get into the Capital building.

This is in the Library of Congress.

Sorry about the rest of this blog, this program is so hard to use that i am just sick of it.

From the Library of Congress we went to the capital and then the next day we went to the old post office and the smithsonian museums and the national archives and fords theater.

The next day we went the mt vernon and arlington national cometary.

The last day we went to the national cathedral and then flew home.
