Washington DC Trip (May 4th-8th)

For our vacation this year we decided to go to Washington DC and be tourists for a couple of days. Josh's parents came with us and were very good tour giudes :).
The night we flew in we stopped by the temple, it was amazing! I wish we could've seen the temple grounds in the daylight, but the temple lit up at night was beautiful!

We went to Gettysburg and did the full tour. It was SO much information, but it was really neat to see everything.

One of the days there we spent touring the Capital and places around it.

(with Brigham Young statue)

One of the stops we made was the Fallen Officer's Memorial. This was such a peaceful place.... and so beautiful!
All I can say is, I better never have to go there and see my Josh's name on that wall!!
We went out at night and saw the monuments all lit up as well. They are pretty impressive that way! We walked SO much and I was exhuasted, but it was all worth it! (this was at 23 weeks pregnant)
We also went on a boat tour that took us past the monuments from a different view. It stopped in Georgetown and we were able to spend a couple of hours there.

The day we flew home happened to be my Mother's Day and my Birthday. So we decided to run and get a piece of cake to celebrate.
We had a great time, it was a once in a lieftime trip and I'm so glad we were able to do it. The weather was even perfect!

I almost had a heart attack when we got home. I went to transfer all of the pictures I took from our trip onto the computer, but they all dissapeared! It said there was nothing on the memory card. After trying several more times and nothing working I freaked out and started bawling. I was so heartbroken that I had lost all of those pictures! I tried calling several computer repair type places and they all said the could "try" to recover the pictures, but the minimum cost would be $200ish, and that was even if they couldn't save my pics! I started googling and eventually found this site that offered recovery software, and would do a search before you had to pay for it to see if it would work. I did the free search and all of my pictures popped up on the screen!! I was so happy, I immediately paid the small price and got all of my pictures back! phew!!

Needless to say, I love our vacation pics even more now!
