The trip to Washington DC in October 2011 was very educational and memorable. We visited a ton of places such as the Thomas Jefferson Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, the United States Capitol and Capitol Hill, The White House, the National Air and Space Museum and the Washington National Cathedral.

This trip marks the beginning of our travels with all three sons.  Before our third son was born we had a few trips to Disney World, a drive to Canada to see the Toronto Zoo and Niagara Falls and the and plenty of Wisconsin Dells excursions three hours north-west of Chicago.
