My sister, Raegan, invited Kelsey and I to accompany her and her girls to Washington DC for a week while her husband, Kirt was there on business. We jumped at the chance and off we went. What a wonderful trip. It was so fun to travel all over the DC area with my sister and nieces as we took in all the amazing things Washington has to offer. We did it all - the monuments, the White House, the Capitol, Arlington Cemetary, the Smithsonian, Mt. Vernon, the Holocaust Center, Amish country, a baseball game, the Pentagon, a play at the Kennedy Center, the list goes on and on. I think the highlight of the trip for me was our trip to Gettysburg. We had the most amazing tour guide. He drove the van and gave us a two and a half hour tour of the battlefields. What a storyteller - he really brought the battle to life for us. The girls loved it. I learned so much. Kelsey loved the Holocaust Center. She had really been looking forward to going there. All in all it was an incredible trip. We had so much fun with Kirt, Raegan and the girls. We so appreciate them including us in this great adventure!
