Our Girl Scout troop of five Cadettes, one leader, and one co-leader (that's me) are hitting the road in my old Mazda MPV van this morning for a trip to our nation's capital. Two days are slated for traveling and four days for visiting. On the itinerary:
- Smithsonian Natural History Museum
- White House Tour
- National Gallery of Art
- Old Town Alexandria
- Arlington National Cemetery (some of the girls are participating in the wreath laying ceremony)
- U.S. Capitol Tour
- National Archives Tour
- Crime Museum
- The Washington Mall and its memorials
- Mt. Vernon
It's going to be fantastic! The only time I've ever been to Washington, DC was on the fifth grade trip many years ago. So I'm really looking forward to it.
And let's not forget the 11+-hour car trip with five young teen girls. Can you say awesome? Wonder how many stops we'll make. . . .
I'll post about our adventures as soon as I can! And I'll also be posting about my family's trip to Miami and Key West in mid-May. Look for both of those soon!
