Getting to D.C. and back home proved to be a chore (to say the least). Once Stephanie & I got there it was quite the city though. It really isn't that big of a city, and yet it is so rich in beautiful architecture, land & history. It seems like you can almost never run out of things to do there. In the 3 days we had there we got to do a lot. I personally had a wonderful time, even considering the heat and humidity. Here's what Steph & I did: visit the National Cathedral, National Air & Space Museum, the Vietnam War, WWII & Korean War Memorials, the Washington, Lincoln & FDR Monuments, Arlington National Cemetery, Georgetown, National Gallery of Art, tour the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts and the Capital. Oh yeah, and also view the White House (from the outside). If you couldn't tell, I love American History (just for fun, I took at least 3 history courses in college. That was after A.P. US History in high school) :)
If you couldn't tell, I am currently taking classes and also been busy working a lot. Both of these things mean that I have no time to blog. So sad, I know. I like blogging...it's such a unique process to write and formulate my own thoughts and to actually sit down in order to do all that. Of course, I'd also like to have more people viewing my blog/getting feedback but c'est la vie...even if it's for my own enjoyment it still serves a good purpose. Anyway, I have some more posts I will publish soon. But first I wanted to share about my trip to Washington D.C.
This is a very poor picture quality image...however, this is the "we've been trying to get the D.C. for 10+ hours and now we're finally making it" smile :)
Here are some pics of the Capital:

And some pics of the National Air & Space Museum
(oh yeah, and did I tell you I know how to fly? Let me know if you'd like me to take you anywhere!)
