Washington DC!

Washington DC is a great city that we've had such a great time exploring. One of my favorite parts of DC are the monuments and our beautiful capitol!

We were lucky enough to get tickets to go up in the Washington Monument which recently reopened after being closed for the past several years.

This is inside the capitol in the rotunda. It was very crowded!

The dome of the capitol is being repaired currently and this drop cloth is suppose to protect the people below from any falling debris-
