Washington Monument and WWII Memorial


After our first few days of hot and sunny weather, Mother Nature changed drastically. Like, serious attitude problem, y'all. And we got rain, rain, and more rain. It definitely threw a wrench in things. But you know, when in DC the monuments are a must, so we braved the rain and saw those landmarks that are so iconically DC and America - the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial.

White House & Memorials


We were lucky enough to get a tour of the White House thanks to my Uncle Dave pulling some strings, and the morning of our tour we woke up early to make it there in time. We went through layers of security before we finally made it inside the White House. Then, once we made it inside we were able to tour the designated areas on our own.

Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception


Kind of a quick post today, mainly because I don't have many pictures from our visit to the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. (Yeah, that name is a mouthful.) Sometimes you just feel like taking a place in instead of worrying about capturing it on camera. But just because I don't have many pictures, that doesn't mean this church isn't incredible. Actually, incredible is a massive understatement.
