We Found Our Seats!! (Amy – West Chazy, NY)

It was another busy and exciting day in DC. We started the day with a reception at the Library of Congress with Senator Dick Durbin.dc-1-19-09-011

Kacie and Jerika were introduced to the Senator, which was pretty neat.

While we were hanging out in the back corner during this event , we were approached by a reporter for an Illinois newspaper, who interviewed us for a story in her paper. There are reporters and camera crews everywhere!

Our next stop was at Arlington National Cemetary.

We could have spent much more time here, however we had tickets to the Kids Inaugural Concert at the Verizon Center.

Guess what?

 

We found our seats as opposed to yesterday’s concert that we didn’t make it to. Michelle Obama and Jill Biden were there with their children/grandchildren. Everyone seemed to really enjoy the show, which consisted of performers such as Miley Cyrus, The Jonas Brothers, and Demi Lovato. The metro ride home was quite interesting. It was almost like a pep rally. One man got the crowd to chant different things, such as “O-bam-a”.

It was a fun day!
