What an incredible trip!

My trip out east was amazing! But what else could you expect when you are with such amazing people? I spent nearly a week with Dan & Bethany, and then another week traveling home with the Wissmann's!

My time with D&B went so fast! But it was jam-packed with fun.

Dan had been hearing about a PHC production called "Wait Until Dark" that the student drama club was putting on. The title made for some interesting dicussion, but we decided to give it a try! It was extremely well done, the actors were phenomenal, and the set was amazing! I am very glad I went, but it was like nothing I have ever seen before! I screamed three times, and jumped at least double that.
The main character was a lady that was blind, and the actress did a stunning job! I was very impressed!

When Dan heard that I had never been to Red Robin he put in on the calendar for Sunday afternoon! And it was excellent! It also had "bottomless fries", so I could have all the french fries I wanted...(dangerous I tell you *smile*)

Me and my burger:)

I have such an amazing brother! (Just ask Bethany, she'll back me up)

After our delicious lunch we debated on whether to go to DC right away or wait a couple days. It was very windy and slightly chilly...not exactly a perfect day for outdoor touristy stuff, but after a relatively quick discussion (none of us are very decisive) we decided to make a day of it! I had never been to DC and I am so glad that we went! To visit the Washington Monument, see the White House (in real life), and just be in our Nations Capital caused a lot of reflection. We were able to visit the Smithsonian museum as well. And walking through the "America at war" section was very sobering! It made me so very proud of our troops, those who laid down their lives, and the families that endure so much! I am so proud to be an American!

Dan and Bethany, how can I ever thank you? Love you both!!

I've seen the movie "Wait Until Dark" with Audrey Hepburn. It was full of suspense! I'm sure the drama was fantastic!
I've also been to D.C. It is such a cool place, full or history and meaning. Glad your trip was wonderful! :)

So glad you had fun! Family is the best!:D

Brings back memories of when I went to D.C. Hard to believe it was nearly 10 years ago! There are some amazing things to see and I'd love to go back someday...there's so much I didn't get to see.:)

How fun, Anna! Isn't DC just amazing?? I LOVE visiting our nation's capital! :)
And yes, the museums and monuments are SO sobering, especially the ones having to do with the wars...

"I'm proud to be an American where at least I know I'm free..." :)
