On our final Saturday night before school started, we got tickets to visit the top of the Washington "Mommy-ment" (as Mark calls it). It was such a perfect evening to be in D.C. The weather was beautiful and the crowds downtown are finally starting to dwindle a little bit.
|enjoying a little treat on the lawn as we waited for turn to go up!|
|there was about a 90 sec elevator ride to the top, and what a view!|
|Keaton kept saying, "we're 500 feet up! I can't believe we're 500 ft. up!" Nice smile, Mark!|
|nice view of the reflecting pool and the Lincoln Memorial!|
|love this quote about the Memorial! It really is incredible!|
|being silly with my boy!|
|The largest free-standing stone structure in the world! standing 554 feet 7 11⁄32 inches tall!|
After the memorial, the sun was setting, so we took a little walk down the National Mall.
|The WW2 Memorial is especially beautiful at night. What a fun way to celebrate the end of summer!|
