Washington Trip

Hi everyone! You’re all getting a pretty special treat today, because you’re getting a post from none other than Rita’s own personal sunshine supplier, Ashley! In case you guys don’t know (you should!) Rita’s my mom, and I’m the 19 year old in college.
So here’s the backstory for those of you who might not know. All the freshman at my school did this essay, and the top 40 would be chosen to go to DC over spring break. I have no idea how it happened but mine was one of the ones chosen! This is the rundown of my little adventure Smile
First off, my best friend’s essay was chosen too, so these people have been blessed with two rays of sunshine! But our flight was at 6 in the morning, and they wanted us to meet up to leave at 3 AM!! Is that not the craziest thing?! And me and Ellie haven’t been on an airplane EVER. So that whole experience was crazy. We stayed up all night, and then our first plane ride had turbulence like nobody’s business. We flew to Chicago though, and from there went to DC and that flight was awesome. I had the greatest view!!
Once we got to DC, you could immediately see we were not in Texas anymore. Everyone was running. Everyone. And these people had some serious problems, they were in such a big hurry and didn’t even smile! Rude! Everything we visited was really cool though. We went to two of the Smithsonian Museums, the American History Museum and the Natural History Museum. We went and saw all the monuments on this night tour and learned all kinds of stuff! Enough of that, picture time!

Just remember, baby girl, Texas is STILL "the south". And you know you're not in THE SOUTH when you go "north", too far "west", or too far "east". Though Savannah is well worth going to! Enjoyed the pictures!
