Washington DC


I finally got around to getting the DC pix onto the computer, so here is a look at a few of the highlights (there were too many to name, we did some amazing things in just 4 days!)

We all shared a bowl of the famous peanut chesnut soup at Mt. Vernon, the crocodile hunter said it looked like bat barf - but everyone thought it tasted great!




Peeking out the windows of the Washington Monument, I always wanted to go to the top as a kid!







The fountains at the World War II Memorial - it was beautiful!


My personal favorite - the National Gallery of Art - we spent 5 hours there, and it was amazing to see in person so many works of art we have studied!


The little princess parked herself in front of Monet's Water Lilies - and sketched her own version in colored pencil. Here she is on the phone, telling Grandma what painting she is looking at - it is Grandma's favorite!



For some reason, riding the bus was a highlight - the girls loved getting on and off - and always wanted to sit in the back.


And of course, the subway - a new experience for these country kids :)
