My Birthday is today, February 15, but we celebrated it a little last week and some more this week with a trip to D.C.! I was the typical tourist packing my camera around my neck and my bag on my dad's shoulder. (Because he's nice like that...) I dont know about posting favorites, because I have a lot! Enjoy!
Everything about the building is gorgeous. I wish I would have taken more photos inside. I was in love! Speaking of love...
Y'all, it was cold. I was regretting my decision to leave my earmuffs in the room.
I didn't get very many pictures inside the capitol, but it's gorgeous. It makes me 10x more proud to be an American and call this building and all it's gold, columns, and marble floors a symbol of our freedom.
After the Washington Monument, we toured the rest of the memorials. I'm proud of my family that have served our country in three of the wars honored in D.C. Each one holds a special place in my heart.
We crossed over the Potomac bridge into Virginia to visit the Arlington National Cemetary.
Our last stop was the Iwo Jima Memorial.
There is so much to see in D.C., but we fit as much as we could into two days! If you have never visited, do yourself and your nation and favor and visit the landmarks and memorials. You will leave with a deeper appreciation for our forefathers and also our fellow brothers and sisters who are continuing to make our nation great.
