Washington, D.C.

Washington, D.C.

Time to play catch up a bit. While we were in Virginia visiting Papa and ShaSha we spent one day in D.C. We would have loved to have more time to explore the museums and other monuments, but we packed a lot into one day.

The first thing on the agenda was to ride the carousel on the mall.

Then we were on our way to the Washington Monument, or as LittleZabba calls it, the pencil building.

We spent the next several hours walking to many of the monuments around the city; the Lincoln Memorial, World War 2 Memorial, Korean War Memorial, & Vietnam Memorial.

That day I was able to do something I have always wanted to do….buy a hot dog from a street vendor. As silly as it is, I was thrilled, and it was a very tasty hot dog. Later in the day, since it was so hot, ShaSha treated everyone to frozen lemonade.

The cherry blossom trees were just starting to bloom. It was so pretty.

We had a lovely day. Everyone enjoyed seeing the sights and learning some new things. BigZabba later said that seeing the World War 2 memorial made her think of Pappy and made her miss him even more. It was a good time to talk about our country’s freedom and what the men and women in the military do to protect our country.
