Our trip to DC . . . at a glance

{Washington Monument and the reflecting pool }

We are back home, recovering from our vacation : )  Another wonderful Easter spent in DC.  We saw as much as we could...taking requests from the girls as we went.  There was a little bit of history... a few pieces of art... some appreciation of the great outdoors... lots of food... and most important of all... plenty of family time.

Here are just a few photos of our time in our nation's capital- 

{ Lincoln Memorial }

{ WWII Memorial }

{ Watching planes fly overhead at Gravelley Point Park }

{ We saw our very own skateboarding bulldog-  "Winston" }

{ grabbing a quick bite at a skytop restaurant- rotating floor with an almost 360 degree view }

{ The National Cathedral }

{ Preparations taking place for Easter Sunday at the National Cathedral }

  1. Angie, I never cease to be impressed by your creative, artistic talent and your skill at photography. I hope that you enjoyed your visit up here to Northern Virginia. Shirley and I certainly enjoyed our time with you and your wonderful family at Sheila's and John's home. Ava and Isabella were perfect little ladies, and Jason was well behaved.<:) Uncle Garnett
