Washington D.C. is quickly becoming one of my most fave places to visit. There is so much history there and as I grow older, I've really started developing a love of architecture. I'm especially enthralled with buildings that have tremendous historical significance. D.C., of course, has no shortage of monuments, which are neat to visit, but it's buildings like the National Cathedral and the Smithsonian Castle that I'm just in love with. Thankfully, I got glimpses of both before I headed back home. We visited a really cool museum about the history of news and how it's delivered. It is appropriately named the Newseum. We also visited the National Portrait Gallery. My favorite part of that adventure was a courtyard that they've constructed in the middle of the buildings. It has a very cool water feature that several kids (and adults) were having lots of fun with, while we watched.
After 32 hours of being away from home, I was welcomed with hugs and kisses from everyone (including our new dog), which reminds why "There's no place like home". Enjoy these few pics from the trip!
