Washington DC Trip


On Wednesday, I headed to DC with my son's class. I had my son and three other boys in my little group, and aside from not being able to see everything we wanted to see, it was a nice trip. I slept most of the way there, as we had to be at the school at 6am, and we finally got situated and on the road at 6:45. We saw the Washington Monument, the WWII memorial, the Vietnam memorial, Jefferson, Roosevelt, and were able to catch a few places of the Smithsonian Institute at the Museum of Natural History, American History and Space Museum along the National Mall route. There is just so much to see there, and I guess in the past the classes used to spend the night, spending 2-3 days there instead of the 6-7 hours we were basically rushed through the place. This was my first time in DC, as well as my son's.

I definitely got my workout in by walking that whole time, and yesterday my feet were killing me! I didn't workout yesterday, as I was almost half asleep at work, so when I got home, my mother-in-law was over for a bit, and then I excused myself to go rest. Tonight I have my PT session with Eric, so hopefully it won't be too painful. If I don't get back to blogging until after the weekend, I hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day. Get out there and do something fun!!
