Vacation in D.C.

We left on Sunday and spent the night in a hotel in the cities.  Then next morning at 4:00 a.m. we got on a shuttle bus to go to the airport.  We  arrived at 4:30.  We got through security and we got on the plane around 5:05 a.m. 

Me and Faith got seats together, but we didn't have a good view.  All we could see was the engine. 

We had a 4 hour waiting period between flights, it was pretty boring.  Me and dad watched two episodes of criminal minds and then we just walked around until we took off again. 

I got the window seat again, and we actually had a good view this time.  Even with gum my ears still popped a little. 

We got to our rental car (a twelve passenger van) and drove to our hotel.  We ate supper at Ihop, since we hadn't even had lunch yet.  Then, we went swimming in the pool. 

The next morning we ate breakfast at the hotel.  We drove around for awhile until we found a parking lot.  We paid the 12 dollars and started walking.  We walked for a long time until we saw the Washington Monument.  We didn't go up but continued walking.  We went to the World War II Memorial and the Lincoln Memorial and the Korean War Memorial and the Capital before going back to our hotel. 

The next day we went to the Smithsonian National Zoo.  Everyone liked the mister they had around the zoo.  It was like a mist shower.  We went back to the hotel, swimming, and then bed.
