Our first stop was to Arlington National Cemetery which is way bigger than I imagined.
We toured the Washington Masonic Temple which was extremely interesting. We did make our way up each of the floors to the obeservation deck at the top of this tower.
We had made special arrangements to join an interior tour of the Capitol, a truly spectacular building.
We then walked the Mall to the Lincoln Memorial on a very hot day! Who knew it would be so hot in Washington!
Here we are on the side of the Lincoln Memorial and you can see the Washington Monument and the Capitol in the distance.
We made a special trip to the Washington National Cathedral, the 6th largest cathedral in the world and it is truly impressive.
