Thanks to Jeff Flake, we had a "private" tour of the Capital. We were glad to go through the "secret" underground tunnels and avoid the long lines. The Capital is a huge, amazing and beautiful building. More like a museum than Government building. Jaren & Michelle loved the story of how John Adams could hear the whispers of the Democrats who sat on the other side of the room. Then, it was lots of fun as we tried it for ourselves and could hear eachother through the crowd across the room.
Michelle our avid reader and book lover was excited to go to the National Library of Congress! Even as much as she reads, I'm not sure she'll be able to read them all. : ) There are about 20 million books kept in the Library of Congress. At least she has a good start.
it was exciting to watch President Bush arrive from Andrews Air Force Base and land right on the lawn!
