All of the recent excitement surrounding the presidential inauguration started to make me feel a little ashamed of the fact that I had never been to our nation’s capital, so Ben and I decided to go! But unfortunately, we didn’t make the trip until two days after the inauguration! Story of my life: always a few days too late! ;) But we still had a great time seeing the sights and soaking up the incredible atmosphere. The first stop on our whirlwind D.C. tour was the Washington Monument.
Gorgeous, right? We went all the way up to the top.
Here’s the view of the White House from the top of the Monument:
And the Lincoln Memorial:
This sign made us chuckle . . .
There was a neat exhibit in the top of the Monument:
I love these next three shots, all taken at the base . . .
These were taken from the Lincoln Memorial:
Ahhh, and here’s my lovely husband, desecrating a treasured national symbol . . .
Just a couple more shots, this time from sunset:
And finally, we may have missed the inauguration, but we did get to see the cleanup!
More coming soon!
