After spending the week[end] with my parents, G and I thought it would be fun to drive down to Washington, D.C. and spend Memorial Day there. We didn’t stay long, but it was still fun to check out some of the sites.
Here are some snapshots of the Washington and Jefferson Memorials:
Then, we walked along Pennsylvania Avenue and peeked through the gates to see the White House.
We also got to see the historical United State Supreme Court. It’s neat to witness where our country’s laws get passed.
It was really hot and humid that day, so we scurried across the street to check out the United State Capitol. The architecture on this building is incredible.
Lastly, we stopped by the Library of Congress.
Before the sun started to set, we needed to head back up towards NYC.
Although it was only for a short time period, it was fun to enjoy the holiday exploring our nation’s capitol. I managed to obtain a ton of NPS cancellation stamps in just one day, so I’m excited about that. Hopefully, next time we will have more time to check out all of the Smithsonians. In the mean time, I’m just happy that we got to visit.
I still have more blogging to come. The Pacific Northwest post is coming soon!
