Washington DC Monuments

When we were in Washington DC, mom made Nick do a lot of walking.  Mom said, "this is a special city filled with history, so we are going to visit as many monuments as we can on our trip."

This is the World War II Veteran's Memorial.  We went at night when the fountain and pillars are carefully lit.
This is the White House, where the President and his family live.
We did not get to visit the Capitol Building, but we had a view from the mall.
We spent time in the Sculpture Garden.  Nick liked the fountain best.
This is Arlington National Cemetery.
The Washington Monument, surrounded by American flags.
Nick at the Lincoln Memorial.
Dad and Nick in front of the words from the Gettysburg Address, also at the Lincoln Memorial.
Sitting outside Ford's Theater.
We walked outside the Smithsonian Institution, which had beautiful gardens.
While not a monument, Nick does love trains, so we took a ride on the DC Metro after a long day of sight-seeing.
