My family and I had the privilage of joining my husband on the Citation Jet that he flies to Washington D.C.! Marc is a corporate Chief Pilot and his schedule is very unpredictable but very exciting. His boss out of the blue asked if the kids and I wanted to come along and we couldn’t pass up the chance. We left on Nov. 4th and returned on the 6th and we saw it all: Ford’s Theater, The National Archives to see the Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights and Constitution, the White House, all of the monuments and memorials and Capitol building, Museum of Natural History and the Museum of American History. My favorite places to go are the ones where you can walk everywhere and D.C. is one of those places. We stayed at the Embassy Suites and we had a corner room with great views of the city and just blocks from everything! We did all of our sight seeing on foot and got lots of exercise and fresh fall air. Just walking down the street you pass the F.B.I. building, the I.R.S, the Treasury building, Engraving and Printing building where our money is made, it was pretty crazy! So much to see all in one place. It was also great to feel some cold air and see the fall foliage! I hadn’t seen fall in years and the kids have never seen the fall season. We got lots of great pictures of the kids holding leaves and we even took some leaves home with us! We had an amazing adventure and made a ton of family memories.
