After we left Philadelphia we headed to D.C. to catch a session at the temple that evening. The drive to the temple, with it coming out of nowhere, did not disappoint. It was such a great experience, I'm sure I will never get over that way again, and I'm glad we gotta go.
The next morning we headed into the capitol. We were expecting horrible traffic, but we did not hit any and the drive was actually quite lovely.
We stopped at the Washington Monument first, but this is about as close as we got.
I saw this blue bird on the way to the White House and just had to snap a picture.

The man in the back is telling everyone to leave
because someone important is coming down the street.

I thought these ducklings on the WWII monument were cute.
Bye bye Massachusetts!
The new WWII monument.
Each one of those stars behind Bob represents (I think) 5,000 people killed.
California here we come!
What the? The reflection pool was completely ripped up. Talk about a rip off!
Pretty awesome view huh? Not!
Another view that could have been awesome.
We also did some Smithsonian stuff that day which will come in another post. I'm sorry I'm taking forever to catch up, but our now SUPER slow internet makes it take forever to upload pictures, so I completely lack motivation. I still have so much to post though, just to get us to Gridley. I will try to be better.
