Wordless Wednesday: A Pit Stop and a Whirlwind Tour

What could be better than a 6 hour tour through D.C. right before the 4th? The city was abuzz with preparations. And it was a perfect way to break up that 20+ hour drive to the beach for our family reunion. (Those pics to come soon...)

  17. Every time we go to Virginia for Christmas, we spend a day up in D.C. One of the years I'm going to remember to try and get tickets to do a tour of the White House.
