the monument

cute (ben's mom) linda and ben

ben, linda (mom o' ben) and i went to the top of the washington monument. the highest point in the district.
i think i've been to the top before... but i was about 7 years old... so it's been a while.

i have a nice friend that got us tickets so we didn't have to wait in line for them.
i like that.

and i like seeing my city from a different perspective.

i love
love love

and the monument.

in the first shot there are some almost patriotic symbols besides the monument itself. Our great nation and its Father Washington gave us what we have today, our freedom, with the toil and blood of those who have gone before. The changing trees bespeak that sacrifice. Nice shot
