Last summer, before we relocated to Nevada and still living in Florida I decided to take my kids to Washington DC.
Originally I thought my husband would go to. Unfortunately, about a month prior to the trip it became apparent he would be unable to go. I decided to push forward with the kid’s trip without him. My kids did stellar in school last year and this was the reward I had been planning for them. We drove! That’s right, I drove 20+ hours in the car with all three kids one way just to do this and no I did not take ear plugs. In case you were wondering, the kids do not like to ride in the car.
Here are the kids looking at the Reflecting pool, the Washington Monument and the Abe Lincoln monument. The kids were all still in good spirits despite making them walk that far.
The kids are standing on the back side of the Lincoln memorial with the Arlington bridge in the background. This is the bridge that leads into Arlington cemetery where JFK is buried and many soldiers. It is also home to the tomb of the unknown soldier.
