Washington, D.C

We tagged along with James as he took several of his cadets to D.C for the Army Ten Miler. It was a whirlwind trip but completely worth it. We got to see several friends while there and made it to some important monuments.

Macen couldn't wait to see the White House.

Hanging out at the Lincoln Memorial.

We spent a little longer at the WWII memorial waiting for James and the cadets to finish up their tours of some other memorials.

At the Arlington cemetery, we found an officer James worked with and watched/listened to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

Army Ten Miler

I didn't get any pics of James running. Once I spotted him near the finish, the boys wanted to see him so my arms were full. He did a great job with his time though.

Paratroopers jumping before the run.

The cannons went off as each wave started. One shot produced this circle that went pretty high up before dissipating.
