    I have been visiting with my parents the past month, I got home this week...

    The hubby and I drove home....long story, Dad gave me his car cuz he wants a newer one and who am I to complain about the gift? :) So the hubby flew in this week to Florida and made the 3 day drive home with me...

    The trip was fabulous, outside of getting lost in DC for 2 hours...

    Driving up to it, "look, there's the Washington Monument and Capitol ....."

    then 15 minutes later only closer up, "Look, there is the Washington Monument and Rotunda....."

    then 30 minutes after that, and even closer to it, "Look, there is the Washington monument and Pentegon....."

    Then an hour after that, closer to it than ever!

    WHAT A MESSED UP SPAGHETTI BOWL OF A HIGHWAY SYSTEM!

    It was ALL under construction, NOT signed properly and we kept going around in circles, and not one highway the same.....

    the whole experience made me think of how messed up DC truly is...inside the Beltway really is.....

    I got some great pics of site seeing spots though....closer and closer each round around the city on the different highways while we were trying to find 95.....
