I Heart Washington DC

We just got back from an amazing trip to Washington DC. We had the BEST time. Kirk's law firm argued a case in front of the Supreme Court and we were all able to be there - even the kids and I had a front row seat. It was awesome to see our judicial system working before our eyes. I have further insight on the whole supreme court aspect of the trip, but I'll go into that more in another entry. We were there for about 10 days total and every day was full of wonderful things. We managed to squeeze in:

Double Decker Bus Tour of DC & Georgetown
Supreme Court
Printing and Engraving
Air & Space Museum
American History Museum
National Gallery
all the memorials!
White House
DC Temple
Dupont Circle
Sculpture Garden
Union Station
Natural History Museum

Plus some amazing four & five star hotels, wonderful Thai, Indian, Italian and American food, and some time every evening to RELAX. Who could ask for more?

Here's a slide show (Kirk's sister, and her husband and kids were able to meet us there the first couple of days too, which was fun, they live in New Hampshire so we don't get to see them that often):

How long were you gone? How did you fit so very much into your schedule? How did you get so many great pictures of yourself? (well of everyone else too) How did everyone hold up to so many activities? You really had time to relax every day?
Looks like a great trip. I'm jealous.

Looks like you guys had an amazing trip! You had so many great pictures!!! But even with all that great scenery, I think my favorite shots were the converse shot and Holden asleep on the bus. Did he seriously fall asleep on a BUS?!! Did that count as his relaxation time for that day?
