Last Day in Washington and Traveling Home

Tuesday, July 01, 2008
We only had a few hours today to see some more sights before heading home to Portland, so we started off this morning by taking our SUV back to the rental car agency, checking our bags at the Ronald Regan Airport, then riding the Metrorail back to the Pentagon and Arlington Cemetery. We saw a Memorial under construction at the Pentagon and a woman being issued a ticket and harshly reprimanded for snapping a photo. We walked around for a bit, then spent the rest of our time at Arlington Cemetery, at which we could have spent a day or two. It was really hot out, so we didn't stay too long, but we did see JFK's grave, which was a very peaceful and serene place. Stones were brought in from Cape Cod, and a flame burns in the upper center of the plot. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and their two infant children are also buried there.

Arlington Cemetery--the graves of soldiers from WWII.

We returned to the Ronald Regan Airport a tired bunch and awaited pre-boarding to start the long journey home. Samuel was ready to go home, and wanted to sleep in his own bed again. Here are the two kids, still happy, despite spending a week in their strollers.

Juniper was ready to be back home in Portland, too.

But she is proud to say that even though she's only 6 months old, she's already been to California, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC., not to mention her weekend excursion to Long Beach, WA.

And because we can't resist her little thighs, and the way they jiggle in the car sometimes, we took a short video to share with all of you.
