Granny, we’re NOT in W. Chazy anymore!!

We didn’t quite manage to do everything we expected. We took the metro into DC this morning and our first stop was the Smithsonian National Museum of American History. Next, we attempted to watch the opening ceremony concert. We worked our way through the enormous crowd only to realize that we couldn’t reach the reserved area, which we had tickets for. It was absolutely CRAZY! dc-1-18-09-022
We finally decided it was best to just turn around and fight our way back through the crowd and get out of there. We figured it would be easier to go to one of the other museums and just watch the concert on HBO later, since everyone else was at the concert there shouldn’t be much of a crowd at the museums. We went to the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. The kids really liked this museum. We finished our tour of before the concert ended and thought it would be best to get to the metro and get out of town before the other 500,000 people flooded the metro system. We got back to Lori’s house and they were watching the concert live on TV. It was a really good concert we were told 🙂

Tomorrow we have another busy day planned. We will be attending a breakfast at the Library of Congress with Senator Dick Durbin. Later in the afternoon, we will take a trip to Arlington National Cemetary. Then we have tickets to the Kids Inaugural Concert in the evening (hopefully we can get to our seats). We are having a great time in spite of the minor obstacles, but it definately isn’t West Chazy!!!

  2. Hi LaValley Family,
    I love seeing your pictures and reading your blog. I was looking for you as I watched the concert. Guess the reason I couldn’t find you was because you left. Have a wonderful time and remember to take a lot of pictures.
