A Day In Our Nation's Capital

When my mom was here visiting from California we spent a chilly day touring DC. If you've never been, DC should be added to your must visit list. There are so many free activities to see and do. Plus it is our nation's capital and full of history.

The Washington Monument

Can you tell I was a little cold?

The Lincoln Memorial

Brennan and Phoenix

Great monument to a great president

Korean War Memorial, "Freedom Is Not Free", a powerful reminder to all of us!

We spent a couple hours at the Natural History Museum

Dinosaurs! When I was a kid I loved dinosaurs and knew everything about them.

It was a nice day, spent together with family, seeing the sites. You can't ask for much more!
