Washington's City

Since reading the book John Adams by David McCullough, I have new appreciation for the founding fathers of America.  Thank you to those inspired men who created our constitution and formed our nation.  And thank you to those who fight for our liberties today.

God bless America!

"Posterity! You will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom!  I hope you will make good use of it.  If you do not, I shall repent in heaven, that I ever took half the pains to preserve it."   John Adams

This was probably the neatest thing I have ever witnessed: the reading of the Declaration of  Independence by descendants of the original signers on Independence Day.  Took place on the steps of the National Archives where the Declaration is housed today.

US Capitol.  Awesome tour given by Matt Westerberg (former USU ambassador with me).

Ice cream and Washington DC go hand in hand I think.  Can't have one without the other.
Hot and humid DC + Ice cream = Happy Amy
