While we travel to Virginia occasionally to visit family, we never set time aside to actually go visit places and see things.
For the longest time I have wanted to go and tour D.C. since the last time I did so, I was pretty young and a) I don’t remember much of it and b) I wasn’t interested in that stuff like I am now. So on the first thursday of June, we took a family trip to D.C. for the day (and to prove our dedication… we left at 6 AM!).
We visited the Air and Space Museum, toured the Capitol and the Library of Congress, and saw the Monument amongst other things. One thing that we didn’t get a chance to do that I really wanted to go see was visit the Arlington National Cemetery. I’ve always wanted to go and see the eternal flame at JFK’s grave site. But on our way there, it started raining and thunder-storming a lot, so we ended up heading back home instead.
P.S. Don’t forget to leave me a comment below on your thoughts! As always, I’d love to hear from you.
