Washington, DC

A trip to Washington, DC for business turned into an exciting opportunity for JBM and FlyBoy. I left on Tuesday and they joined me on Thursday. Not without some drama at home as FlyBoy had to find alternate care for Hope before he left. Once they arrived, they had a wonderful time. Our Congressman helped get them a tour of the Pentagon and the Capital Building. They also visited the top of the Washington Monument and Arlington Cemetery. Together we took a night tour of the city which was wonderful.

It was a wonderful bonding experience for the boys and we also enjoyed interstate train travel which none of us had ever done before. I think we may have found a great alternative to traveling by plane....within reason of course.
Unfortunately, we were not invited to dinner at the White House. Maybe next time.......


  1. I think your invite was just lost in the mail. A beautiful city!

  2. That sounds like so much fun! I LOVE that they could come on your work adventure : ) Washington DC is one of my favorite places.

  3. When Spawn is president, we'll get an open invitation.

  4. The White House is busy anyway these days, with the Chinese folks.
