Washington D.C

Wow! I haven't blogged in quit some time sorry about that to our handful of readers. We have been traveling like crazy, Thomas and I went to Utah for almost two weeks, we came home for four days and then we went to D.C. We had so much fun in our nations capitol, I had no idea I would enjoy D.C. as much as I did. Thomas also loved it! The Washington Monument above was his absolute favorite site, we went to see the monuements at night when they were all lit up. Thomas could not quit staring at it.

I highly recommend seeing the monuments at night it was nice and cool and they look amazing at night. It was so awesome to be around so much history

Our first time on a real life subway, it wasn't as dirty or scary as I thought it would be. Although it was kind of scary thinking just a couple of days after riding this subway that it crashed.

Thomas at the Air and Space museum of course we had to go to this museum look who I married.

More Washington D.C

I just had to post this! We went to the National Archives and if you have been there or have seen the move National Treasure you know that bright lights are forbidden around the Constituion. Well Paul gets right up to the glass to take a picture and forgets to turn off the flash. He did this right in front of security needless to say he was not allowed to use his camera in the museum again.

Our hotel was right down the road from a real life outdoor movie set, the gawkers said it is some new Reese Witherspoon movie. Not sure of the name of it, but we thought it was pretty cool.

Well we finally got to see the White House, after an hour of driving around to find a parking spot and then another hour to walk to it. We walk up to the gates and then they decide to turn the light off. Sorry the picture looks kind of weird Paul had to do some crazy stuff to the camera to get it the shot.

Working Vacation

The real reason we went to D.C. is for Paul's work, he is the Union Negotiator at his work and he had to go there to a training class. Thomas and I just tagged along. Paul was in training for 12-14 hours a day, Thomas and I did get pretty bored some times but we went on a lot of walks, played at the playground and went swimming.

Thomas loves to swing!

The resort we stayed at was on a beautiful bay, with amazing boats docked there, it was kind of crazy there were a ton of jellyfish all over in the bay.

Thomas at the swimming pool, the water was freezing!!
