Nation's Capitol

We were on vacation for ten days and, although we've been back for four days, I'm still trying to catch up.  But here are a few pictures from Washington, DC.  This is the first time I've been to our nation's capital.  Three days were not nearly enough to see and do all that we wanted to, but it was certainly all my feet could manage!  I really enjoyed taking night shots, but most of them weren't the best, since I didn't have a tripod with me.  The capitol building with the reflecting pond is one of my favoritesl
This is the least blurry of my Iwo Jima shots, but from here it looks like real Marines, not a statue.
 Ahhh, the Washington Monument with the Capitol building in the background.
 And most everyone's favorite, the Lincoln Memorial.
The Korean War Memorial.  
 We had an awesome tour of the Capital, made possible by our Congresswoman!  Here are all four of us, not acting tired at all!
And here's my husband right after the tour.  I think he needed a nap.
We made some wonderful memories, but it's great to be back home.
