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!
