Money.. hot dogs.. pedometer!!!

Tim was happy to be standing by one million dollars in ten dollar bills... but no FREE SAMPLES at The Bureau of Printing and Engraving in D.C. A very interesting tour!!

We ate lunch of hot dogs and cokes on the streets of D.C. This day was cool and rainy..
There is so much to see and do in D.C. We went to 5 different things the first day.. ( went to the top of Washington Monument... 555 '.... Engraving, Natural Science Museum, Portrait Gallery and Zoo. ( Saw the famous Pandas )... and on the second day, we rode all over the city on a tour bus so got to see over 20 major things.. including Arlington Cemetery, Kennedy's Eternal Flame, changing of the guards at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier... A LOT of WALKING!!! This is my pedometer... Dr. says try to walk 10,000 steps/ day .. as you can see we walked everywhere on Thursday... even in the RAIN!!! I walked over 23,000 steps. I have NEVER walked that much before.... Was SO TIRED!!!! I should frame this picture...

Glad to hear you are having a blast and keeping healthy to boot. Didn't you walk a lot when living in the D.R. ? I did!
We must be blogging at the same time. I have more pictures of our family that Sue Reber took when we met them on Saturday. She is going to e-mail them to us. Really good time and lots of pictures with her "good" digital camera at the Soo Locks. -kari

Hi Carole,
You should enlarge and frame the pedometer picture. Thats a lot of walking. Looks like you all were having a great time. Someday I will make it to D.C. Seems so interesting. Have fun.
