On Wednesday, son #1 and I returned from a five-day trip to Washington, D.C., where we celebrated his graduation from high school. Although it was my fifth trip to D.C., it was my first trip that was strictly for pleasure, and it was his first trip of any kind.
We managed to cover a ton of stuff while we were there, and in the next few days I'll be posting some pictures from, and some commentary on, the trip. Even with all the awful things going on in the country and the world right now, it's hard to return from a trip to Washington and not feel inspired.
Here he is pictured shortly after our arrival, proudly wearing the CSU, Long Beach (his destination in the fall) that his uncle gave him as a graduation present.
