Amy, Rhett and I had a different flight from Josh(since MLB requires him to fly 1st Class...ha...we got there in 1 and half and Josh had to fly to Atlanta first then to DC taking him 4 hours!). Amy, R and I had the funniest(craziest) cab driver, telling us that the week of inauguration was crime-free, unlike heaven where the angels would be "touching" us. I think that pretty much sums up our entire cab ride to the hotel.
Then while waiting on Josh we decided to take on the cold and wind and walk to the Capitol.
We were soooo cold walking back!
We rode in a cab the whole time. Rhett was hilarious and had to ask every cab driver their name, then I had the chore of having to pronounce them back for him. The nicest one we had was Abu(and easiest to say). Ironically, we were hailing a cab on the last day and we got in the cab and the the guy turned around and Rhett said, "Abu!" Yep, it was Abu again. There are 5,000 cab drivers in Washington DC and we got the same one twice in 3 days!
Then we went to Benni Hana's to eat for dinner. Josh got to have the night off from doing Nationals stuff
We walked to the Smithsonian one day....Natural history is really cool! Rhett loved the dinosaurs and loves them to this day now.
Rhett was making same face as the skull.
There was so much for Rhett to learn about there. We can't wait to be there all the time!!
After we went apt hunting one day we got to go visit Josh at his new stadium!
Daddy then took Rhett for a ride in the locker room!
After a long day we went to "Lucky Strike" bowling alley...it is a celebrity hot spot...we had so much fun watching Rhett bowl!
Love this picture of Amy and Rhett! Josh only beat me by one pin!
Had to take a picture of Amy next to the Gettysburg address, because to this day she can still recite it!
This is Amy and Rhett next to the Vietnam War Memorial.
We went to a lot more of the memorials that day but it was so cold! We were freezing and hated to make Rhett suffer any more!
We loaded up, Josh met us at the airport and we all got to fly home together. We got us a place to stay and saw and appreciated our Country's history more than ever. We are now excited about starting this new chapter in our lives. I think we will have a lot of very cool experiences. I will miss my sweet Marlin girls but it will be a nice change to see another part of the country.
