We parked our car by the White House and walked down to the National Mall…saw a bunch of monuments and memorial…Steph said we must have walked at least 5 miles – from the Lincoln Memorial to the Jefferson Memorial…I know…that’s a lot of walking for a little bear like Andre.
On our way to the mall, we passed by the FDIC….your bank better be insured by these people.
50 degrees outside. Sunny – people washing cars in their driveway. We decided to get out of the house. Andre came with us.
I started taking pictures of people on their way to Inauguration….on the red line…before getting into the newsroom….I figured I just wanted to soak up the whole day…..
I also went to the Freedom Ball – as a member of the press core. It turns out my station passed on picking up the interviews and the Bush/Cheney speeches…but that’s ok….I went to inaugural….and that was cool….Bush and the First Lady danced to My Fair Lady’s “I Could Have Danced All Night.”
Last weekend….we went skating at the National Mall…
Andrea took the pictures. We were not allowed to have cameras and cell phones on the ice….and they were strict about it.
I only got yelled at three times for doing jumps and spins….yeah, I may not be a 100 pounds…but I can still skate
