Washington DC

Jill contacted me about six months before we left complaining that for the Senior Class Trip her high school was going to Disneyland, she didn't want to go to Disneyland and she didn't understand why they couldn't go some place cool like Washington DC. This got me thinking, Colby and I had been talking about going somewhere fun in the summer but couldn't decide on someplace that we both could agree upon. Colby served his mission in the DC South Mission and we had visited for just a couple of days a few years ago (which turned out to be over six years ago, time flies) but we had always wanted to go back, spending more time there. One thing led to another and we were off to spend 9 wonderful, exhausting, humid, tiring, fabulous days in the Washington DC area.

I had to get this photo of how we spent our layover in Chicago, Colby is watching a Netflix movie on his cell phone while Jill watched a movie on her iPod nano and I read a book on my Kindle. It felt so techie but I laughed at all the travelers fighting over the power outlets to charge up their devices.
