We had our first day in Washington DC with our two oldest granddaughters. We did a lot of walking – 5 miles which is evidently more walking than the two of them have ever done in a day (at least based on their complaining). We kept them going with food, Gatorade and ice cream at opportune times. We were able to see Fords’ Theater, the White House, and several of the monuments. We actually got to see the son of one of our friends who is a sniper on the White House. We waved, but surprisingly he did not wave back – guess he was busy being watchful. They had a great time and enjoyed seeing all of the things that they have heard about in school and Don had a great time taking pictures. Tomorrow we have to get him on the other side of the camera.
