Two beautiful girls ready for a big day!
Our first stop was to find parking! We parked really far away, but at least it was free. Our first stop was the Jefferson Memorial. The girls were a huge hit with a group of Asian tourists. Many of them took their pictures and thought they were so sweet!
Next was the FDR Memorial. It was our first time seeing this one and I was very impressed. It was near the lake with a park and several beautiful waterfalls.
Of course, the Lincoln Memorial was on the list of sites to see. Unfortunately, Lily was getting very anxious to run around and we let her go. She made a beeline for the memorial and slipped under the chain around it. I had to sprint (in front of several people taking pictures) to grab her before she started climbing on it. :D
Next, we went to the Washington Monument, where Lily went up to strangers, talked to them and even started rubbing one woman's leg, who was thankfully very understanding! Then, we walked a LONG way to the Smithsonian Art Museum. Lizzy hitched a ride in the back of the stroller. I wished I could too.
