D.C. Day Two

We headed out to Arlington Cemetery Saturday morning. Jason and I really spent a lot of time in explanation of the Cemetery and how we should show respect when walking around. The kids did so well. We were able to visit the burial site of JFK before heading over to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. I was able to take several pictures from Arlington and I will let the pictures do the rest of the talking.

After touring Arlington Cemetery, we headed down to the National Archives. Everyone really enjoyed seeing the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, and the Constitution. We really enjoyed walking through all of the exhibits as well. I do not remember the exhibits from the last time Jason and I were in D.C., but these exhibits were really great. Unfortunately any type of photography is not allowed inside the Archives, so I was not able to take any pictures.

We decided to head back to the hotel a little early for the evening. The kids wanted to swim, so we headed down to the pool. However, our pool was closed. The kids were super disappointed. We did go down and talk with the front desk and they told us that we could use another hotel’s pool. So, we took off up the street and the kids were able to get in a little swim.
