Washington D. C. Day 2.
Arlington Cemetery and Lincoln Memorial was saved for the last day… and I am glad we did. Stepping into History and honoring those that have served our country best… made me honor them in my heart little bit more.
Our last day was spent in Washington D. C. We took the metro into town again… and our first stop was Arlington Cemetery. The metro was an interesting system. The girls did pretty good, but as you can tell it moves rather quickly. It goes forwards and backwards and you have to know which color to get on too, and which direction it is moving. It really scared me at some points of when the girls got too close to where the metro was coming from. My fear was for them to fall right off onto the tracks… and then their would be nothing left of them. I am not sure if I would be okay, after that happened, but luckily it didn’t! I finally moved them way far away from the metro line… because I was too scared. On the metro… I felt fine and I felt the girls were safe. We did have one time where there were a lot of people, due to some water main breaking, but usually we rode it on off-peak times. My sister-in-law had been in to Washington D.C. before and was an excellent tour guide… but we did download an app of the metro lines so we knew when and where we were going. The last day we bought a day pass… because were going to be jumping several different lines that day.
Our first stop… Arlington Cemetery.
