|For lunch we got personal pan pizzas at Pizza Hut at the airport. Oh these are the best! The crust is amazing!
|The graves went on for miles and miles. The tour guide said that in 14 years it is predicted the cemetery will be full. He said on average they have 30 funerals a day. That is one huge cemetery.
|This is where the Kennedy’s are buried and the Eternal Flame that never goes out.
|It was chilly out! I was glad I brought a big warm coat!
|There are only two wooden crosses in the cemetery and those are both for the Kennedy brothers.
|Thursday Mom and I got to go to Mount Vernon which was George Washington’s Home.
|George was kind enough to let me join in the family picture.
|This was the dinning room and my favorite room of the house. I want my walls this color in my house! They also had a really cool bright apple green room. The beds in all the rooms were super tiny. I think people were just really small back then?
|This is where meat was hung and kept fresh?
|Paint storage! I guess back in the day the colors of your walls told how rich you were. I just want bright walls to make life more exciting.
|Georges sweet ride. They said this is one of many of his. That would be kind of fun to ride in one of these…on a nice paved road.
|This sheep was giving himself a back rub on the fence. He is a smart one.
|Cool black sheep.
|I liked how George was really thoughtful and put benches around his home for guests to sit at.
|George on the right, wife on the left. Family in the black part in the back. That is originally where George was until someone made him and his wife these lovely coffins. Marble? Most of his whole family was buried here with him on their estate.
|Very large tomb.
|For my meal I got a Colonial Turkey Pie. It was like a pot pie filling with a hard biscuit on top.
|Peanut soup was something Sue had been wanting to try for some time. It tasted like pure peanuts with tons of peanuts in it. Defiantly worth a try!
|When we got home Mom started to make dinner and I got to make cupcakes! Growing up Sue would make these Easter Basket Cupcakes, so I got to join in and make some to!
|After a great dinner and cupcakes, we all watched Tangled. That movie is so great. I may have fallen asleep towards the beginning…….I will have to watch it again.
|Friday morning we got to go to the Washington DC Temple. It was so beautiful! We even got to do a session! It was fun spending time with my new fam!
|Large snail shell.
|Walking down to the title basin. Lots of cherry blossoms to line all the edges of the water. The Japanese originally brought these trees over and planted them here. Thank you Japan 🙂 They are beautiful!
|Our happy family.
|Waiting in line to get some yummy food! And warm hot chocolate!
|I love popcorn! This was great popcorn to!
|It was fun walking around. Now time to head to George Town!
|Here we are on our way walking to dinner to meet up with some of Jakes parents friends. We got to do a little shopping before and did some damage. We got a really cute candelabra though!
|This is where we got to eat and look at the water through a window because it was to chilly to sit outside!! It was fun!
|Sue, Mitca, Vonya, Kim, Jake, Kelsey! We got to enjoy a great dinner all together!
|This was a great end to the evening. One thing I am grateful for after this trip is free parking.
|When we got home, we realized we were leaving the next day and it was time to pack. While we packed up our bags, Tuna made a thank you card. He spent alot of time on it. I think it turned out really great. I am still so proud of him.
|After a great breakfast, packing up the car we head to Baltimore for the day before we flew home. We got to go to the National Aquarium. This was the cool entrance.
|We first started off by going to the Dolphin Show. It was fun, but more informative. I want to swim with a dolphin someday. We even got a yummy pretzel to eat while watching.
|After you could watch the dolphins below. They were cute and kept circling the tank, but it was hard to capture a picture of them.
|They had many themed exhibits which were neat. These are some jellyfish.
|Alot of the aquarium was in levels and had lots of area to see many kinds of animals.
|We thought the turtles would love a place like this. Maybe someday! I am excited to see them when I get home!
|Can you find the hiding fish?
|Sea creature eating a cucumber. We liked that. He is making sure to get his greens in. I need to follow his example.
|View of the large tank from above. They had a cute 3 legged sea turtle in here. He was huge. I was glad he had friends and is still alive.
|This is called a big side headed turtle.
|In the Australian exhibit. Jakes parents were really excited about this one because they used to live there.
|There were such cool exhibits.
