In addition to seeing the monuments, we also stopped by the Library of Congress which was situated right next to the Capitol. Luke enjoyed reading the ancient Bibles and seeing the exhibit on the Civil War. Neither of us had ever been there before, it was really beautiful inside…just wish we could have had more access to the books 🙂After the Library of Congress, Luke’s dad told us we should check out the Botanical Gardens across the way. Ann met up with us and we all enjoyed seeing the different types of plants. My favorite were the cacti!
