It’s been a few days since OMST has been around, and for good reason. We have been visiting our Nations Capital this weekend! Yes Riley was able to experience all the beauty and majesty we know as Washington D.C.
At the beginning of the week, we were able to go to Baltimore and watch our Seattle Mariners play against the Orioles. But on Wednesday we drove to Gettysburg to view the battlefields of the Civil War. We first started out at the Gettysburg Visitor Center and Museum.
On Thursday we got lucky and received a tour of the White House. Sorry we don’t have pics of being inside (they will confiscate your phone) but we were able to catch a little snap shot of her outside the gates!
Later that afternoon we were able to visit our Congressman Devin Nunes’ office in the Longworth Building! They gave us a tour of the capital which was so much fun. We felt even more special when the other group didn’t show up! If you ever visit DC and you know in advance, make arrangements with your Congressman’s office for a special tour of the capital. We contacted their office 5 months ahead, and they not only arranged the Capital tour but also the tour of the White House!!!
If you follow us on Instagram or Facebook then you might have seen these pictures tagged with #NunesSelfieTour, his intern staff had this great idea for a cool selfie tour of the capital! I think we were the very first ones to complete it!
On Friday we visited museums which you’ll be able to read about later. Saturday was the day to visit the monuments which turned out to be a perfect day. We took a tour with the Old Town Trolley Co. which was fun and the bus drivers were so knowledgeable about DC, well they are Washingtonians. Several monuments we stopped at included Franklin Delano Roosevelt:
And the World War II Memorial:
We also visited the Martin Luther King Memorial, Korean War Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial and the Vietnam Memorial. I will share all these pictures at a later date.
Our journey has not ended, we are now in the great state of Tennessee! and will be joining a bunch of pet bloggers in a few days at the 2015 BlogPaws Conference.
