Successful, but non-restful vacation

Whew! We just got back from a whirlwind tour of Washington, D.C. Since the kids will be studying American History next year (Exploration to 1850), we thought we would have a little hands-on field trip to help secure a tangible picture of where some of these events took place!

Here's what we saw:

As I said, successful, but not restful. We walked our legs off, even with the DC Metro ferrying us! Our feet were killing us.

I did find a very cool tool to help with the planning and coordination of the trip. I had been using Dopplr, but a friend recommended TripIt. I would HIGHLY recommend TripIt. Setting up my itinerary was as easy as forwarding mail from my hotel, rental car, airlines and tours, and it tied it all up in one convenient location for me. Check it out!
