Labor Day in Washington, D.C.

This is a long overdue post. I’ve been meaning to share few photos from that trip but time and work stuffs are in the way and honestly, been playing video games every single day! But here I am trying to work on this post again – for the nth time!

Labor Day this year — 2018, my family and I visited Washington D.C and explore a few place for a day.

We were all ready around 4 in the morning and headed out to barge in the road for good ol 3-hours. Surprisingly I didn’t sleep while on the road knowing that I only got like 2 hours sleep, maybe it was because of the coffee.

Our first stop was: Washington Monument. Last year December we visited the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Concepcion which I posted few photos here. And we had a peek of the Washington Monument. So then, we planned to visit that other side of the state the next time we visit.

Parking in a busy streets are really hard. We spent couple minutes driving and searching for public parking. Since it was a holiday that time, some of the public parking slots were closed especially those at the curbside. Luckily, we found one – thanks Google! Haha.

We parked near the Thomas Jefferson Monument (which at first I thought was the Lincoln Monument). We took few photos here then we started our way to the Washington Monument. Brace yourselves, because I might post a ton Washington Monument photos**

Our next stop was the World War Monument.

After few clicks, we walked our way to the Lincoln Memorial. And how amazing was the Reflecting Pool though?

Stopped for a quick breaks here and there. And continued our way to the Lincoln Monument.

It is really amazing how I used to see these scenery on movies and now I am actually seeing it on my eyes. Especially the Lincoln Momument and The Reflecting Pool.

We then decided to visit a Museum. Washington, D.C has a lot of museums to offer. From one block to another, you’d be able to visit one! We went to the Smithsonian Natural History Museum. Entrance fee is free, not sure if it’s because it’s a holiday or it’s just really free. Checking this off of my bucket list which is: to visit a Museum.

We roam around the museum and learned a bit from the trip. One thing that amazed me were the animals to be honest, you wouldn’t think that a giant squid is taller and bigger than a human!

And our last stop was the Butterfly Museum which is also part of the Smithsonian National History Museum and we spent couple minutes in a room with these butterflies.
