Last Weekend - Washington DC

Last weekend we went to Washington DC.  It was a super quick trip to attend a change of command ceremony for a family friend.  Thursday night we took the foster kids to a foster family down the street. Friday we got on the road early and were able to see a lot of DC.

Warning, many pictures ahead.

Friday.........we first went to the Air and Space Museum.  There is lots to see and do there.

Larissa was very upset by the war displays.  She says that war is stupid and wants to know why we have them.

Naturally, the kids got to ride on the metro.

We were not able to go up the Washington Monument because of earthquake damage.

WWII Memorial

Lincoln Memorial

At the end of the day we rode the Metro out to the mall at Pentagon City to eat.  Food was a huge expense on this trip.

Next post....Saturday


  1. We took our kids in between Christmas and New Year last year and loved it. It was freezing cold and the Smithsonians were crowded, but it doesn't matter...getting to be there and see it is always wonderful.
