Snap Happy: D.C. Part Three

On the last day in D.C. we, first, popped on over to the Thomas Jefferson Memorial. It faces the Potomac and is quite cold...so we only spent enough time to grab some snap happy moments. 




C thinks he is hilarious. 







On the way back to the car, my brother and I found another small memorial dedicated to George Mason, the author of the first Bill of Rights. 



(Told you he thinks he is funny.) 

Our trip would not be complete if we didn't take a trip to good ol' 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue...aka the White House. It has a lovely, heavy black gate surrounding it...which can make it difficult to take pictures, but I did my best in the arctic conditions. 




(Oh yeah got all up close and personal with the freezing gate, just to take pictures of the Obama's front yard! Haha.)

It was a lovely trip and it is always nice to re-explore some of you favourite parts of your country. The summer is travel season for everyone and their mother, but do take a trip the United States Capitol. It is truly and awesome place to be. There is such history in those oldish buildings. It is truly what makes America, America.
