Thursday Monument Tour: Part 1

On Thursday morning, we bought tickets and got on a Big Bus Tour. It was a great tour on a double decker bus with commentary about all of the things we were passing. We were also able to hop on and off at the stops whenever we wanted and could go explore more.
 This pretty blue house made me think of Mom!
Belton was very sweet and fell asleep in my arms a few minutes after this. 
 Our first stop was in Georgetown where we went to a couple of shops. I was trying to take a picture of us with the pretty flowers on the light posts along this street...but I failed!
The Lincoln Memorial- from the side

 Abe Lincoln, himself!

 As always, Belton loved the airplanes!

 We stopped for lunch and then headed out to explore some more and were greeted by RAIN! Aunt Debbie's poncho was big enough to keep her and Mom dry! 
 Bec and I decided to ride on top of the bus in the rain. It was very crowded and stuffy on the bottom level of the bus. We were already wet- so why not?!
