Heading to Washington, DC.

On Friday afternoon, we will pick up Tim from work and head to Marion to spend the night with his parents. On Saturday, we will head to Washington, DC for our family vacation. Because we had frequent flyer miles on American and Delta, we are flying separately. Natalie and I are going Delta (direct flight) and Tim and Nathan are flying American. The boys will arrive first and we will follow that evening. We are only going to be there for 4 days and will pack a lot in. On Sunday we are planning to visit the Air & Space Museum and possibly the National Aquarium. Monday we are taking a tour of the monuments and memorials using the Tour Mobile Bus. Tuesday we are hoping to take a day trip to Mount Vernon. Wednesday we have a Capitol tour schedule and will also visit the Bureau of Engraving. I ask that you will please pray for us - that our attitudes would be pleasing to the Lord and we would just have fun with each other. Also, pray for me using the Metro - I'm a little nervous.

Excited for you!! The Metro is quite easy to use. If you have time, my favorite spot is the "library of congress." Like many tours in DC, it's free. It's beautiful (art everywhere) and the tour guides tell great stories that weave history with the art and building. My second favorite place is ARlington Cemetary - the changing of the guards.

D.C. was one of our best trips! The Metro is easy to use and very clean and efficient there (unlike NYC). I didn't feel nervous about getting lost or my safety at all. The Old Town Trolley bus tour that we took to visit all the main sites was definitely worth it! It is far too much walking to get to everything with kids, especially in the summer heat. It will be the best money you spend there! Have a great time!
