We were beyond excited to see our nation’s capital for the first time as a family. The intensity was at an all time high with just a few weeks to go before the 2016 Presidential election. Our dear friends were so gracious to give us a behind-the-scenes tour of the Capitol Building and The White House, as well as experience Washington D.C. sites like the zoo, and the Natural History museum with an insider’s touch. Thank you, Kennedys.
I suppose our kids will most likely remember the “sleepover” or licking the carpet of the West Wing (a strange urge Johnny had), but that’s okay. We walked away feeling even more proud to be American. We’re going to celebrate democracy, hold our heads up high and say thank you for letting us live in this country we call America – the land of the free and home of the brave. We’re forever indebted to all of those who’ve gone before us to create such an incredible country.
Love, the Mellors
