I help send Vets here to see their memorials on the Northern Colorado Honor Flight, and I help make Quilts of Valor for them upon their return -
I thought it only fitting that we go check out the monuments.... you know make sure they were alright for my Vets to see ( ha ha - the parent in me??)
Don't you love that breakfast?
My kid can burn that off in 10 minutes.... me? I'm still working on it !!
Mind you - we packed light - so these are all cell phone photos
The Washington Monument
I love how all the flags surround it
And then the WWII Memorial
From there we headed to the Lincoln Memorial
And then to the VietNam Wall
I have a thousand more photos that are a great memory for me of our day.
I hope that everyone gets a chance to just walk through these memorials
It really is awe-inspiring
I have a step tracker thingy on my phone
My kid was trying to kill me I am sure
this day we walked 12 miles
I deserve a new pair of shoes now right???
