Washington By Night

Jay, Christian, Nils, Kirsti and Linnea with the Washington Monument
I can't think of a better time to visit our nation's capital than the 4th of July!  How fun is that? My family arrived for their vacation there yesterday, and despite the heat and the humidity, seem to be enjoying themselves.

Of course, my niece Linnea and her husband live there now.  Their apartment is only a few blocks from the Capitol building.

Christian being silly.  Too bad the tourists got into the shot!
Christian is twelve.  He is having fun taking silly photographs.  Nils was serving his Latter-day Saint mission to Mexico when the family was last here.  This is his first time in Washington.  I'm glad he got to come along this time.

They all decided to walk the mall at night - as it was (theoretically) cooler.  The buildings are all beautifully lit up, too, which makes it nice.

I can't wait to see more of their adventures through the next few weeks.  They plan to be on the mall again for the July 4th celebrations!  I can't wait to hear all about it.

Stay Tuned!
