This week I had a chance to take the family to Washington DC. One of my amazing brides who happens to work at The White House invited my family out to DC for some amazing tours. Thanks Susan you are the best!!!!!
I couldn’t pass up the chance to get a tour of The White House and The Capital Dome. It’s our first time to DC. We are having a blast.
We are staying at the very hip Hotel Rouge. I love the furniture in the lobby.
Headed to the White House for our East Wing tour. I wish I had more pictures around the White House. No cameras allowed. Sorry.
After the East Wing tour we got to attend The White House Summit On International Development. Which president Bush was speaking at. I even had a press pass. So who would of thought I’d be shooting images of the President this week.
The conference started off with an African Children’s Choir performance. It was great.
This is such a great city.
The Jefferson Memorial
We did an evening tour of The West WIng. That’s actually the oval office in the background.
This is the entrance to the West Wing lobby.
This is the press briefing room. It looks a lot larger on TV.
This is where the reporters sit.
Our favorite tour was of The Capital Dome. WE actually got to go to the very top of the dome. This is not part of the regular tours.
It was a long way down to the bottom.
It was so cool to be so close to the top of the dome. The art work is amazing.
This is our view from the top of the dome.
This is the original Senate Meeting Room.
This is the view from the floor. We were way up there at the top earlier.
Don’t ask me what Matt is doing.
The Air Museum is a must see.
So is the Natural History Museum.
We also spent a little time walking around Georgetown
