Our First Monument

On Tuesday we got up at 4am, so by the time we finally arrived in Washington DC and had located our hotel, we were pretty darned tired. The kids would have been happy to just stay at the hotel and watch cable television (they are so deprived at home!) but I dragged them out to town and we did some sightseeing.

 


I am so glad we did. We had a great time visiting the Washington Monument. Not only did we get to see it from the outside, but we got to go inside and take the elevator up to the top.

 


Such wonderful views, it was a great introduction to our nation's capital.

 


This was the best start to a great vacation!
