I love that we were in Washington together as a family. It was so cute to find all of us on our phones at the same time! I thought it was funny! I was taking pictures, Detto was getting ready to record a video of us, and the kids were checking texts. I love technology!
Here we are outside of the Library of Congress.
This fountain was really pretty. I didn't expect to see such a HUGE fountain here. Such a pleasant surprise!
It was cool seeing the actual Declaration of Independence, The Bill of Rights, and The Constitution of the United States!! Wow! Were were right there!
This statue outside of the National Archives says "The Heritage of the Past is the Seed that brings forth the Harvest of the Future".
"Eternal Vigilance is the Price of Liberty"
We were not allowed to take any pictures of the inside of the building. Except in the Gift Shop where Alyssa showed me her Abe Lincoln impersonation! LOL
More pictures tomorrow!

We stood in line to go and view the reading room.
I was so excited!
We were only able to view the reading room for a few minutes because there was a line of other people wanting to see it.
So... We headed to an exhibit that they had about Central America and the discovery of America.
Then we got to see....
I can not believe that I saw it!!
How cool is that?
After we looked around we decided to head to the gift shop and get a souvenir ornament and a book!!Look what I found?

We took the tunnel from the Capitol to the Library of Congress.
Look it's me and my babies.
Sissy was excited to see a Paul McCartney poster!
There were so many details. If someone isn't looking in every direction, they would miss a lot.
These were in each corner of the room.
I like that the "U's" were in the shape of "V's".
I wonder why?
I took a panoramic picture of the place.
I will post more tomorrow.
