Taylor and I go to DC

I had meetings in DC this last week so I decided to take Taylor along
so she could experience the Nations Capital
We took a trolley tour around where you could get of and on at all the sights
first was the Capitol

The Smithsonian Castle
Jefferson Memorial
Lincoln Memorial

WWII Memorial....we also saw the Vietnam Memorial and the Korean War Memorial
and all the other sights along the Mall area

But we both agreed that Arlington was our Favorite stop

The White house
Taylor also was able to visit the American history Museum, Holocaust Museum, Air and Space Museum and the spy Museum
there was soooo much to see and just not enough time to see it all but we had a great time!
But she also discovered that she is a little "barn sour"....
(hope you know what i mean)HAHA

The video's are just for Brittnee....
She told me before she left how much she wants to go to Washington and to Arlington
as I mentioned, Arlington was amazing
they told us that they do between 25-35 funerals a day there
we were able to witness the Cason precession which was very touching
they asked that no pictures be taken but it was a very beautiful thing
first the Military band and then the horse drawn carriage with the casket
followed behind by the family....
it and the tomb of the unknown soldier
are great reminders of what an awesome country we live in.
