sixteen hours of memories


Yes, I am seeing historical and memorial and important things, but these hotel paper cups make me laugh~there's also one with a moustache. 

Cherry blossoms are long gone, but the dogwoods are lovely
It's been a 16 non-stop day with 56 teens and two buses in a major city AND about nine miles of walking, so there will only be captions tonight. 

JFK's Eternal Flame 


Edward Kennedy

Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

Waiting for the changing of the guard

The Air Force Memorial 2006

FDR Memorial (much better at night) 

Oh look~America has one famous woman

At the Newseum (remind me to write an entire entry on this fun museum.)


  1. Hahahah. "Oh, look! America has one famous woman!"
    Also, no famous people of color, at any time, ever.
    Good times, DC and Maryland. Good times.

    1. There was a statue of Helen Keller in the visitor's center & a chaperon was incensed that they made her a little girl & ignored everything she did in her later years. (and why is it taking twenty years to put Harriet Tubman on the paper bills?)
