Last Day – on which we brave the cold, wind & rain (don’t know why it wasn’t snow – it was 32*). First destination: National Archives. We got front row parking! Unfortunately, there was quite a line … in the rain … so I and my big girl camera waited in the car while the dudes perused the Declaration & Constitution. Of course, I wasted time taking pictures of the cold and the wind and the rain.
Oh look! The cutest little Angry Bird in the Universe is back. He doesn’t look toooo angry … The Teen requested a stop at the Jefferson Memorial. To take his birthday portrait. So I sucked up my weather-weenie self, stuffed my big girl camera in a plastic grocery bag, and ran the half mile (ok, maybe it wasn’t that far. but really, it FELT like 3 miles) from the very distant parking lot, thru the rain and the wind and the COLD, to the monument. Thus concludes our field trip days in DC. Now it’s time to find our way out of this confusing downtown monument maze, get over the bridge, and hop on our plane home. Where it’s warm.
