Girls' Day Out

A few weeks ago, Mummy and I went together into DC to do a little sightseeing. V. was busy, so it was just us girls. I made reservations to go up inside the Washington Monument (it's free, but you have to book tickets ahead of time these days). We rode the Metro into the city for our day of sightseeing.

First up was the Washington Monument (Mummy waiting for our turn to tour):

where we got an amazing view of the city in four directions, and saw some of the inspiring words of the father of our country (if only we would heed them now!):

Then we walked down the National Mall to the Lincoln Memorial, taking one last look back at the Washington Monument and its reflection in the Reflecting Pool:

Having fun together! This is just after we had taken a rest with some Parle-G biscuits that I ended up feeding most of mine to the ducks in the Reflecting Pool, heh.

Here's Mummy in the Lincoln Memorial:

and me:

I have sindoor in my hair because the day before was Das Lakshan and we had been to the mandir near our house.

Mummy's knee was starting to hurt after so much walking, so we had to call it a day and catch the Metro back home. Still, it was a beautiful day and we had a great time together chatting and enjoying the sights of Washington DC.
