Washington DC Day 2

Thankfully, Meredith had our whole trip planned out perfectly!  We were able to get in all of the main attractions and then some.  For our first full day in DC, Friday, we spent the day walking around the Tidal Basin and seeing all the monuments.  Our metro stop was in the heart of the city so we were able to experience that as well.  We even saw the PEW building where Meredith works!
 The Washington Monument

 World War II Memorial

 We found Idaho!!

 Vietnam Memorial

 The timing of our trip just barely missed the beautiful Cherry Blossom Festival!  However, we were still able to find a few blooming trees.. so pretty!

 Walking around the Tidal Basin gave us wonderful views of the memorials and monuments... from a distance and up close.   Jefferson Memorial

 The White House.  Security as tight this day due to an arrival of another foreign country's leader.  It was cool to see the special motor brigade upon his arrival!

 Ford's Theater where Abraham Lincoln was shot and the house across the street from the theater when he was taken and later passed away.
