What a wonderful trip to Washington DC! Our bestest friends "The Nutters" from Kentucky came to visit and we had a fabulous time! First we went to the IMAX showing of Dinosaurs "Giants of Patagonia" at the Natural History Museum..then we walked the 2 miles down the mall to the Capital Building and got to tour it. How beautiful it is! There are bronze and marble statues (2 from each state) all over the place, and we had fun looking for Kentucky, Wyoming and Alaska. I took over 100 pictures and here are a few of the best ones! Sheri , Lance and Cameron Nutter and Lance's mom MaryAnn....Daron, Hannah and I left at 8:30 in the morning and got home at 6pm. We took the metro and then had lunch in Chinatown at our favorite restaurant. If that place ever closes down we dont know what we are going to do haha. What a great day! Enjoy the pics!
