The Washington Monument is a beautiful memorial to one of our founding fathers and first president, George Washington. It stands 555' high. Unfortunately, we were not able to go inside of it because it was closed for renovations.
Daddy and me
This one was one of my favorite scenes from DC
They light it up so prettily at night
A few quotes from George Washington:
"If freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep tot he slaughter."
"Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence."
"A free people ought not only be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government."
"It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible."
