photojournal: field trippin' the VA Civil War Trail and Washington D.C.

Let's fit in a field-trip-extravaganza before the craziness of travel season and moving begins.

And let me tell you, February is the month to field trip. Only no one knows about it, apparently.

Fine by us.

We just finished a History unit on the Civil War so we started in Buchanan, VA and followed the trail up to D.C., hitting the Civil War Museum and some of the battlefields. The next day was D.C. bound and we hit all the major monuments and two museums. And barely scratched the surface of all there is to see and do there...but enough to reach capacity for us until the next time.

Sidenote: This age and stage with my kiddo's is my jam. A perfect little sweet spot between toddler years and teenage years.

If you can't beat em, join em. 

Zoe found it quite exhausting. "I'll just take a little nap while I wait for you..."

A thunderstorm was rolling in, so we booked it outta there.

After her"exhausting" day, we decided it best to leave Zoe with Nana for D.C =)  Just the three big's on this day!

We made friends with the SS police after he photobombed. We happened to hit the day that the barricade to Pennsylvania Ave was gone for the first time since the Inauguration. Score!
