Washington DC day 1

On day one we drove from Sevierville, TN so we didn't get into Virginia until around 5:00 PM. We checked into our hotel and drove into DC to look around. It is so beautiful at night with all the landmarks lit up. We found a parking spot along the mall area and walked a little.

We walked to see the Washington Monument. It is so impressive! It was much larger than we imagined it would be. It is encircled with 50 American flags representing the 50 states.

We then walked across the street to the World War II Memorial. Each of the war memorials were so impressive. It is so hard to imagine the lives that have been lost in our wars.

Each star represents 100 lives that were lost and it is a very large wall of stars. They reflected into the pool which was very pretty.
