Sightseeing Part II

This week I have guest bloggers Carolyn (my sister) and Olivia and Rose (my neices) writing about their visit during their Spring Break.

It was great to be in our nation’s capital this past week. The girls were thrilled to see such iconic sites as the Jefferson and Lincoln Memorials and the Washington Monument, and they learned some history at the FDR Memorial (very humbling) and the WWII Memorial (quite inspiring). Who wouldn’t like seeing money being printed at the Mint and eating Native American food at the Museum of the American Indian? Dorothy’s ruby slippers at the Museum of American History were fun and I loved Julia Child’s kitchen. Beautiful spring evenings on the Mall were splendid watching tourists and residents alike enjoy this space, especially since spring had just barely arrived at home. A fun boat ride on the Potomac capped it off, not to mention spending lots of time with Aunt Marianne!

I just moved from Albany, NY, to the Washington, DC, area and many friends and former co-workers want to hear about my life here. So this seemed like a great way to do that.

    Your visitors seemed really impressed by their visit! ( Did Olivia & Rose really write that first part or did Aunt Marianne help them out?)
    You were a great guide to show all those iplaces in a few days.! I’ll bet everyone slept well each night!

    The bread line is classic.
