WASHINGTON DC TRIP

My brother Preston and I flew to DC for a fun vacation. We stayed with Nikki and David and had such an incredible experience touring DC. We took close to a thousand pictures and so for my blog post I have decided to post the highlight of our trip....which was difficult since the whole trip was AMAZING!!!! We saw all the Smithsonian, got a private tour of the capital, toured the white house grounds and saw the pentagon. Thank you Nikki and David for making our trip so memorable and for your hospitality.


WE MADE IT TO DC!!!!!



THE BELL



We visited the pentagon the 1st night we were there



In memory of the lives lost they made benches and put names of those lives lost on the grounds of the pentagon where the plane crashed.



LIBRARY OF CONGRESS
We also saw where the books were but they wouldn't let us take pictures. It reminded me of National Treasure:).




The ceiling is amazing


I loved being in here
