Washington, D.C.

 The Washington Monument is under construction still because of the earthquake that happened in 2011.  I think it looks cool, but now with the construction of the reflecting pool done they need to get this done!

We spent some time in this gorgeous building/museum.  I love how things are free here it is really nice and you can take pictures! Which I love of course.  

I chair or couch maybe? Still cool though. 

 This dress is made out of glass.  It is pretty impressive. 

 Glass spinning wheel. Sleeping Beauty needs to wear the glass dress and spin some thread on this!

 Coolest thing ever! It is a grandfather clock covered with a sheet or is it...

 You have to take a really good look at this to see that the sheet is in fact wood.  If I didn't read the plaque I would think this is strange way to show a clock.  Really creative.

 This building was massive. 

 This one not so much.  This place is still tiny to me. Hollywood made my expectations of this unrealistic for some reason and made this place appear larger than it really is.

 WW2 Memorial one of my favorites. 

Look who it is North Carolina!! I was in the car/bus for 16 hours getting from there and back, but it was worth it. 

The new and still dirty reflecting pool.  I guess you can't have everything.

Lincoln Memorial

 MLK Memorial

 Honestly I am not sure about how I feel about this memorial.  It isn't that I don't really dislike it I just think it should have been more literal because I am completely lost about what this has to do with anything.  The memorial is also not really in the best place and off the beaten path which is lame!

Jefferson Memorial
