Here we are in Washington D.C. Our flight was great. When we got off the plane in D.C. there were so many people there cheering and greeting us. Also a bunch of camera crews. We are staying at the JW Marriott which is 3 blocks from the White House. Once we got checked in we took a walk around the back of the White House and checked out the Washington Monument. We ended up eating dinner at a place called the Old Ebbitt Grill which they say is a place where all the political people eat.
Monday started out early. We all met at the lobby and then headed down to the ESPN Zone for breakfast and hours of playing fun. The kids went from one arcade game to the next. They all had so much fun. It was a great time for us the get to know a lot of the other Champion Families. The families are all so nice. We also met Miss America and country singer Mark Wills.
After the ESPN Zone, we all boarded a bus and took a tour around the sites. We ended up stoping at the Lincoln Memorial, the Vietnam Memorial and Korean Memorial. What wonderful sites that we were so excited to see. Once we finished the bus tour we were on our own to visit any museum we wanted. Our family started with the Air and Space Museum and then headed to the Museum of Natural History. There are so many great things here to see.
I think it will be an early night for us tonight. We are all beat from all the walking and site seeing.
Carson has said this is one of the best trips he has every been on. He is loving everything. I am so excited because I have always wanted to visit Washington D.C.
