Until last Wednesday...
I guess I've never been a lot of places until this whole drive-across-the-US-in12-days-seeing-as-much-as-possible thing. But my number one vacation goal for probably the last 10 years has been Washington DC. And now, I've been there!
The feeling I got standing inside the Lincoln Memorial, gazing up at the statue and reading the Gettysburg Address, was unparalleled awe. I was really here...I couldn't quite believe it.
So enjoy this massive photo dump of our 1/2 day in our nation's capital yesterday!

|The White House|

|A cop on a horse!|
|I love all the amazing architecture on the East Coast!|
|Should I know what this memorial is? ...I don't|
|The flowers in front of the Red Cross building were all coordinated red and white! =) ...it's the little things!|
|This cute little guy was not afraid of us or our camera at all.|
|I don't remember what this monument is|
|I had always dreamed of seeing this view...looking down the reflection pond.|
|WWII Memorial with the Washington Memorial in the background.|
|Walking along the reflecting pool|
|...amd I've always wanted to see this one.

|One of the coolest and most surreal moments of our trip was standing here and looking up at this famous statue|
|I stood there and read this whole speech as well.|

I hope you enjoyed this little photo journal of our day in DC. It was a such a wonderful experience and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
