Washington D.C. part 2

Here are some close ups of the cherry trees, Mel. Sorry it's waaaaay late! LOL

We also were able to walk to the WWII Veterans Memorial. I have not been to a memorial since I was a teen and I was overwhelmed by the emotions that came over me. I was trying not to be too noticeable, but I couldn't help the tears streaming down my face the whole time we visited. It was incredible and an overwhelmingly huge and well made monument. I look forward to going again- with tissues!

Grant and Jake posed cheerfully, really! The sun's in their eyes, that's why they look annoyed!


  1. I am so glad you enjoyed! We never got to talk about it, but I often thought about whether you made it over there. I knew your kids would LOVE the WW2 Monument, I didn't know you would love it so much! It does the same for me; now I just have to get you to read some of my WW2 books so we can discuss. You know. In our spare time. yeah.

  2. Did you guys see the Vietnam Wall? I have a cousin whose name is on there. We went one time and copyed the etching his name for my dad (it was actually his brother's son). Talk about tears flowing. I remember some boy walked by and asked his mom what we were doing. I was crying so hard I did not hear what she told him. I love D.C.
