washington dc, monuments + memorials {5.1.13}

1 May

We woke up Saturday to perfect sightseeing weather with blue sunny skies and set out on our DC monuments and memorials walking tour. First up was of course The White House. Secret Service were aggressively shooing onlookers away by the back  fence, apparently there were people in the yard. From far far away I was pretty sure I could hear Michelle calling my name to help plant in her garden.DSC_6576DSC_6569 DSC_6645 DSC_6649
