Washington DC with the Proulx boys

We went with the three older boys to DC with their dad and Uncle Bennie. We started at Arlington Cemetery and from there bought tickets to take a tour bus around the rest of the city. This was great as we knew the boys would never have the energy to walk all around DC and we didn't have the energy to carry them :)
Jordan, Joshie, and Jadon waiting to go check out the cemetery.
The changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

The guard coming up to inspect the other guard's gun. This was the highlight of the trip for me, to see this up close and witness the detail involved.
Marching.
They boys in their matching outfits.
Matt and me on our throne! This is the front of the ampitheater that is connected to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The president gives an address here every Memorial Day.
A funeral procession.
Jadon - looking like Abraham Lincoln with the other boys as his arm rests :)

It was great for you guys to be able to go with them. I love that picture of Jadon with his hands on the boys heads. Mostly, I love the cuteness of the matching outfits.

Very cool. I'm glad you're getting to do so much travelling and sight-seeing.
