I think next year we will be called "Team Clueless" or "Team Doofus".
But...it was SO much fun! Who cares if we solved 1, 2 or all of them? Not us - because, really, it isn't the point of the excursion for us. It is about hanging out, seeing the sites of D.C. and trying the challenge. Wallene is actually the best at the clues but we just could not figure them out. They are HARD. [Or Mom & Dad are just stoopid. heehee]
Anyhoodle - without further ado here are the pics' from today:
The requisite Wallene shots from the car of monuments and such -
|United States Institute of Peace|
Such a pretty building
|I think this is the IRS|
Here are our shirts -
|At the first clue|
And how we identified ourselves as "Team Wallene" and each of our names -
|Pooldad insisted we put it on his arms instead|
Eating hotdogs. :)
And I never make it home without a picture of a duck [always taken by Wallene] -
This statue makes me wonder everytime I see it -
The reason is because it is the "Boy Scouts of America" memorial statue. Why is the grown man [behind the boy scout] naked? Is it just me or would you wonder the same thing?
This is in front of the Newseum - they have the front page of every state's major paper posted everyday. So cool:
|I could have stayed here all day. Fascinating!|
MY hotdog! Yes - I got one. Yummy!
|I only ate 2/3 of it - it was really good tho'|
I think she had a good time:
I know her Dad and I sure did.
Thank you to both Pooldad and Wallene for pushing me all over NW D.C. [Sidenote: It is very bumpy let me just say. :D But, better then having to walk.]
Hope everyone's Sunday was beautiful and full of smiles too. :)
Hugs and love.
ETA: One more pic' for the perfect end to the perfect day - Pooldad grilled out and we had cheeseburgers, chips, pickles, watermelon and iced tea - one of the best cheeseburgers I have ever had.
Enjoy your night. :D
