Washington, D.C.: Lincoln

Tucker studied Abraham Lincoln this year and so we made a point to see the Lincoln Memorial.  The day was miserably hot and muggy and the walk from the Smithsonian metro stop to the Lincoln Memorial, which I think is one of the best things to do in DC, turned us into dripping, grumpy zombies. 

Instead of enjoying the walk around the Washington Memorial, through the World War II memorial and along the reflecting pool, we hopped on the bus and dragged ourselves up the steps to see Honest Abe. 

We did capture Kenedy in the hot haze.  And Tucker rolling in the new grass.

"Peace does not appear so distant as it did. I hope it will come soon, and come to stay; and so come as to be worth the keeping in all future time." -Abraham Lincoln, 1863
