Washington DC, the First Day

Congress in session...Vice President about to come out.... regular citizens please stand back.
We began our first day in DC by riding the train into Union Station.  Our grandson, Billy was ready for the ride and couldn't stop talking about "Trains".

All aboard.
We've arrived at Union Station.... now which way to go?

We started walking and didn't stop for the next 5 1/2 miles.  Here are some photos of our day.

It turned out that the Senate named their building after me.... cool.
I enjoyed that the Senate was so humble that they would name their building after a regular ordinary citizen, such as myself.  I accept this honor in the spirit in which it was given.  Thanks, Senators.

Next we were off to the Smithsonian Air and Flight Museum.  We all enjoyed this huge museum.  Billy is ready to fly.

All things "Space".
Looking down the Mall.
We just touched the tip of the iceberg.  We will need many more days to see all that we want.  5 1/2 miles is only the beginning.

We ended our day with ice cream..... true Americans.
We're off to Gettysburg today.  Life is good.
