DC Day 2 - Shady Sun

This is going to be quick with little detail because I'm exhausted. Just be happy there's pictures. :) Some are taken from my cellphone and some are from my friend Zred's camera.

Day started at the Washington Monument.

The statue at the bottom of the monument
The view of the White House from the top.
The next stop was the National Cathedral...oh so beautiful!!




Next we stopped for lunch at the National Zoo.

The pandas are so cute!! I wish I got a better picture of the baby. He was sleepy.

Lions n Tigers and Prairie dogs...oh my!!

We went to the Holocaust Memorial/Museum which you can not take camera's into and honestly I get so mesmerized that I wouldn't even have thought of pictures. We watched a movie and had a couple tears. If you've never been it is a very moving museum and many of the kids said it was their favorite part so far.

Lincoln Memorial is one of my favorites!! He's so huge and amazing.
He's got a great view as well.
Last stop was the Korean Memorial.
The sock didn't grow much today because we were busy and tired. I'm off to get some knitting in before I need to be asleep. Hope everyone is having a great week.

Happy Knitting!!

  5. the Holocost musuem was the most emotional experience of my life. Its been many years since I was there, parts were still under construction but it was worth visiting in every sense of the word
