First Day in DC

Today was a great day in DC. We took a bus tour ride first thing this morning to see some of DC's attractions. We saw the Washington Monument, many of the memorials and most of the government buildings including the FBI building. Then we got off the bus in front of the capital to take pictures. It was an awesome Kodak moment for sure. I will be posting a few of the pics from today.

We then had a Capitol Hill luncheon in the Dirksen Senate Office Building where many of the state Senators were present. One of the pictures for this post is a pic of the future government officials speaking into the mics of the Senate Office Bldg or maybe NOT. Our Senator Lindsey Graham did not make the luncheon, but called us and wanted to meet with Hannah afterwards. So, we met him on the steps of the capitol after lunch for a picture.

The rest of the day was ours. We went to the Air and Space Museum (very cool) and took in a few other sites on our walk back towards the hotel. Our hotel is very nice with excellent view of Pennsylvania Avenue from our window. The girls are taking a swim as I am updating this now. Fixing to go join them.
We have been really busy. I want to say that we just got on the WIS News website and looked at the stories that have been aired. I want to personally thank Hannah Horne and Taylor for their wonderful work they did with our story. You made it so much fun and we love you! You are very excellent at what you do!!!

Going for a swim and then onto the White House tomorrow. Ending tomorrow with a big celebration at the ESPN Zone. Thanks to all back home following us.

See you soon!
