I really like this shot of Kellie taken as she was reading an inscription on an interior wall.

No matter how many times I've seen it, "The Wall" (Vietnam Veterans Memorial) is always sobering. I caught my family's reflection in the black granite as they were walking towards the Washington Monument.

By this time the heat and humidity had sucked all the energy out of the kids. They retreated to any shade they could find. We had exhausted all the monuments we could. The Korean War Veterans Memorial, World War II Memorial, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial were others we explored.
We only had two days in D.C. and I just KNEW we couldn't get away without visiting an Air and Space Museum. That and the Holocaust Museum are coming up next.
