"I'm glad we were here together in our Nation's Capitol" ... By Megan, not James

Amy, Regan, and Travis came to D.C. a few weeks ago for a family vacation. Since we live so close, we were able to hang out with them for a whole day! 

It was a lot of fun. We stayed in a wonderful hotel that was more like an apartment and went to the National Mall to check out the sites. 

First we stopped for a little bit of food in Chinatown. 

Then we went on a tour of the Capitol Building. It is a really beautiful building. Our tour guide Leo was able to let us go out onto the Speaker of the House's Balcony that looks over D.C. You can look straight down the mall. That was pretty cool. 

Every state also has two statues somewhere in the Capitol. Each statues is a famous or influential person from that state. Leo knew we would be excited to see this one ..... Go Cougs!

After our tour we went to the National Archives to see the Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights, and the Constitution. 

It was a fun weekend in D.C. Thanks to Amy and Travis for letting us crash their vacation!
