The kids went to Washington, D.C. last week. They had a spectacular time despite that hotel rooms had no DVD players, the TVs didn't have the right jacks for Xbox and the breakfast buffet was yucky. My first text from The Girl was "This is NOT a five star hotel". I KNEW I raised her right!
Every year during the month of May, about one million 8th graders visit DC. And they all see...
The Washington Monument
Grand Union Station
The Capitol Building
The Korean War Monument
The Vietnam Memorial
And the White House
complete with a guy on the roof.
They also went to Mount Vernon, ESPN Zone, the Holocaust Museum and the Smithsonian. But Blogger is acting a little funny right now, so if you want to see those pictures, you'll just have to come by the house! It was a whirlwind tour of the city to say the least. The Girl took about 300 pictures. The Boy took around 100. And they both texted home quite often about what they were doing, seeing and eating. The only part they didn't enjoy (except the hotel breakfast) was the eight hour bus trip to get there and who could blame them!
