Alright, so we finally got out and did some sight seeing which I am very happy we did becuase all of this stuff was amazing! It was a very pleasant Sunday afternoon and aside from the humidity, the day was very nice and not too hot. There weren't many people around also, so that was good too.
Obviously this is the Lincoln Memorial. I couldn't belive how big everthing was. The builing, the pillars and Lincoln were all just so huge! This was my favorite memorial.
Here is the Washington Monument and the water pool thing (I don't know what they really call it) and I thought this was really neat.
Here is the Korean War Memorial. This was a different one--they had a lot of statues of men in grass trying to replicate how it really was and their facial expressions looked so real and it helped you to understand what they might have been going through. This is me standing at a wall where they have pictures engraven into it. It was pretty neat as well.
This is the Vietnam War Memorial. This one had a huge black wall that had 58,000 names on it of all the people that died or was missing from the war. After seeing that and being there makes you have a little more respect and appreciation for what those men and women did.
This is also a Vietnam War Memorial of the Women who served in the War.
This is at the World War II Memorial. This one was fun--it had a water fountain and a pool where you could wade your feet in the water and it was a nice one where you could just relax.
Who ever said the Washington Monument was huge was wrong!:)
