Playing Tourist


We were the proverbial tourists by making sure we had maps to try to figure out where we were and where we were going and could we actually find it on the map. Did I mention we had one tourist map at first and Sylvia and Erik spent the whole day fighting about it? The next day we picked up another free tourist map. Amazing how a simple thing like that can improve quality of life.


Erik really wanted to visit the Jefferson Memorial. It is big and impressive and I loved seeing it. Nobody really loved the walk there though, it is just a bit farther out of town than the other memorials and this was after a few days of trudging around town. I finally wised up and bought tour bus tickets so that we could ride to the next few memorials. Next time I'll buy the tour bus tickets on the first day. Definitely worth the money. Live and learn.


The kids with Jefferson.


Did I mention how we loved seeing all these historic monuments in person?
