One of the coolest things we did this summer (and I’m so glad we made the effort) was to check out the Apollo 50th projection show on the Washington Monument. Katie and her family happened to be in town, and were doing Boy Scout/Family stuff part of the time, so they were already in DC, and we met them there … Continue Reading →
