D.C. or BUST!

Wednesday, March 7, 2007
Hooray! We're actually going to get a little vacation this year! We are planning to go stay five nights in Washington DC with David during Spring Break. He's been working up there for a while and thought it would be fun for us to come stay. My mom and my baby sister are going with us, so it should be a lot of fun.

This will be our third trip to DC, but we still haven't seen everything I would like to see. I thought I would start making a list here of the things I want to do so that I won't forget them all! Here's the first one! I think Katie would love it, and I've always wanted to see the National Cathedral.

This is also something we want to see. Somehow we've missed Arlington National Cemetery on both of our other trips.
