Flowers, Memorials, Cars and Buses Everywhere

We went somewhere.   I'm putting pieces of our trip here for me to remember and if you're looking hope you've seen some of the same remarkable sites of Washington DC - US Capitol City in April.

The Cherry and Magnolia blossoms were in their full, amazing glory.  Everywhere you looked the trees were bursting in blooming splendor.   Our first days in DC were misty, gray and cool, it didn't dim the blossoms.

The time we were there marked the 150 anniversary date of his assassination.
We saw a play at the Ford Theatre called Freedom, a big, bold singing performance.
The Ford Theatre has been historically preserved as it was in Lincoln's time.

WWII Memorial.  This is a beautiful memorial to all the men and women at home and abroad.
This one choked me up.  My dad was abroad, my mom at home both involved in the war effort as was everyone living at that time.  Lucky for me, they met after the war.

400 Stars for the 400,000 that died in this war.

Planning out a set up for a weekend show in Rochester, MedCtiy Art Fair at the Mayo Civic Center.

Our 'motor coach'.  Really, this bus going around the city was a show stopper.   I saw a little boy fall down on the sidewalk, he was just about to cry and then he saw our bus.  His jaw dropped but no crying just big, round-eyed looking as we passed by.

Typical DC traffic - ugh!  Taken from somewhere inside the bus.

It was a great trip.  It was hosted through WI Public Radio, Holiday Vacations provided everything.  They took good care of us.
