our inauguration experience!!

We made it to the inauguration and we made it home!! I must say it was a great experience to be there and witness history. To be around so many people and so many different races was moving. I mean we were literally on top of each other and yet no one complained. Everyone seemed to stay happy and really enjoy the moment! It was FREEEEZING! But once you got in the crowd it felt like 98 degrees! That’s how many people were around us. My oldest son really enjoyed it. Of course Jayden didn’t grasp the entire concept, but one day she will, and I am sure she will be happy to talk about her experience in witnessing history. Here are a few of our pictures from the trip. Enjoy

This is at the concert. This was an hour before the concert started so you can imagine what it looked like an hour later! The firefighters were nice enough to take this shot for me! 

This was in the subway on the day of the inauguration going up the escalator! This is how many people that got off the train the same time we did! Can you believe this crowd? Of course the escalators were not running.

This was the view behind me of people waiting to get on the escalator! WOW! 
Lani and Dj all bundled up on the day of inauguration. 
This is why we homeschool!! I couldn’t resist getting a shot of this. 
Me and Dj on our first day there! 
Jayden and my Sorority sister (who was so gracious to let us stay with her and her hubby) on the subway to the concert. Jayden fell asleep midway through the concert. Which was a good thing because there was no room for her to jump around an play. We were tight! So it was good her and the babies slept! 

Overall we really did have a great time!! I am so glad that we decided to go, and allow the kids to be apart of this moment. This was a great learning experience for them, and if nothing else Jayden was thrilled to ride the subway! She is a city girl in her spirit! I hope to post more pictures soon.

  1. You all must haveb een at the L'Efant Plaza Stop. That is what it looked like. I had planned to go but i didn ot want to deal with all those people. I will be there next for work. I love DC and should move there since it is nothing here in St. Louis.

  2. That was our original stop, but they had closed that one due to way too many people being there, so we had to get off at the capitol south stop, which as you can see was not any better. They eventually stop the train from running all together for about 3 hours!
