Last Day in DC

On Friday, we had the opportunity to tour the White House gardens. This tour only happens six days a year, and we were fortunate enough to be in DC on one of those days. We were also blessed to find this information from another tourist the day before.

The day also brought a day-time visit to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. This memorial has impacted my view on war in a significant way. To see the names of the soldiers lost individually personifies the cost of war. It’s such a moving and important place. !

Our last stop was the National Zoo. Why? It was my 12 year old daughter’s dream to see a live Panda Bear.

We’ve been so blessed on this trip. Thanks for all the prayers!
