Last week, JP and I were presented with an opportunity to visit Washington, D.C.
We were there LESS than forty eight hours!! I know. We are a little crazy, but it was worth every lost hour of sleep – and we lost quite a few!
Obviously, we didn’t get to see everything, so we’ll definitely plan to go back. JP loved it. There’s so much more I want him to experience.
We attended a rally on the lawn of the Capitol. It was a great experience for JP. He had a lot of questions that led into a one-of-a-kind US History lesson.
Of course, I had to grab a photo of the Marine flag for dad.
After the rally, someone (in an attempt to protect the innocent, I’ll not share names) decided it would be a good idea to WALK to the White House. From the steps of the Capitol, it really doesn’t look that far. It seemed like a good idea.
Looks can be deceiving.
We literally almost died. JP said he felt like his feet were about to fall off and I was sweating bullets. Tennis shoes would have been more appropriate but, of course, I was wearing sandals.
We ended up grabbing a cab back to the capitol. I wasn’t mad about that.
We took a break at the Trump Hotel and gave thanks for the air conditioning.
The building was gorgeous.
The highlight of the day for JP was the Capitol tour and meeting Senator Lindsey Graham.
He was proud of his “official business” badge.
Graham sat down with us for about forty five minutes and we discussed, well, the current issue in Washington – and we’ll leave it at that. He was FIRED UP. He impressed me with how he interacted with JP.
Thanks to our friends (family), Jeff and Olga, for inviting us to tag along. We had an absolute BLAST!
I apologize for the late post. We are spending a few days at Pawleys and the only thing I’m not in love with is the internet connection.
Have a great Tuesday, ya’ll!
