I was not joking when I said I plan to do nothing but lay around tonight and catch up on blogging and organizing my digital photos. Right now I am set up in my room doing this.....
I am so thankful for my sequential pump. It acts like a massage and helps my circulation. I truly do thank God for it. It is through HIS provision I have this piece of equipment. Thank You Lord!!!
I have absolutely no complaints or regrets on any part of our trip including the airports. Everything went very smoothly for us. One really neat thing happened while we were waiting to board our flight in OKC. We ran into the wife of our former music minister. He left Emmaus a few years ago to pastor a church in our area and now they are moving to the Seattle area to pastor a new mission there. They have adopted 3 children from Korea. Our friends, Jeron & Kristine, and us wanted to meet with the McCains before they moved away to discuss and hear their adoption journey but time ran out. I thought it absolutely God that we ran into his wife at the airport and they were on our flight to DFW. God is an great God!!!
Our first full day of "vacation" was spent in Washington DC on July 2nd. Our mode of transportation on this day was....
We loved riding the Marlyland train (MARC) and the Washington subway (Metro). It was a neat experience and not too terribly scary. I thought the flag outside of Union Station in DC were pretty and patriotic.
Our agenda for this day was to see the capital building and the National Archives. Due to the no flash rule in the National Archives, my pictures did not turn out too good. It was a little sad viewing the Declaration of Independence. Due to the lack of preservation when it was initially written, the Declaration has faded tremendously over the years. We could barely read some of the signatures.
We had someone take our picture in front of the capital building but I'm not sure you can even see us very clearly. It was a little funny. The gentleman who took our picture kept insisting he take another and another until we finally said "Thank you, that's enough!"
Here are some pictures inside the capital. We loved the tour and the intern for the OK representative was great. He went to school at OU and lived in Norman. In this next picture I am standing on what was originally the center of Washington DC under the capital building. The star marked the spot.
Our guide took this picture of Bryan and I on the backside of the capital.
