Wednesday, March 20th

After driving for 7.5 hours, we just couldn't sit around the hotel.
We hopped on the shuttle bus to the subway and then into
Washington, D.C.

Olivia loooooved the subway.  She called it the "train-train". 

Washington Monument 

Capitol Bldg.

World War II Memorial 

Lincoln Memorial
This is the one thing I wanted most to see.
The walk to & from this from the subway stop was
I walked 3 miles in the two days in D.C.
I think that's the most I've walked in two days since the accident.

Luke liked seeing the policeman on horseback.

Here it is, folks!

The kids with the reflecting pond and the Washington Memorial in the background.

The White House waaaay in the distance. 

Thursday, March 21st

Waiting for the shuttle to go to Washington, D.C.

Waiting for the "train-train" (subway). 

On the subway 

Livy "reading" the paper. She's hilarious. 

If you look VERY carefully, you can see "Pentagon" on the wall through the window. 

It was so wonderful to see flowers.  When we left home on Wednesday it was snowing. 

This McDonald's cart was kinda neat.  (Notice the daffodills).

We loved going to the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum

Poor Livy-Lou got plumb tuckered out.

We watch a show on the Food Network called "Eat Street".  
We saw one in real life and got to taste some of their yummy food
We all shared a beef brisket sandwich and also a pretzel.

Sunday, March 24th

We had a wonderful Sunday with some dear brothers and sisters in Christ.

Monday, March 25th - First day at the ocean

The wind was chilly, so I borrowed Luke's hoodie in addition to my own.

AJ bought a pair of non-prescription glasses at Wal-Mart just for fun.

Watching Andy Griffith

The love of my life.
