Washington DC June 2013

Bry at the WWII Memorial by Corrigedor - we visited this while in the Philippines and have some great memories of it.

We were invited to Abi's Cousin Morgan's wedding in DC on June 22, 2013.  She married a nice Marine, Scott in a beautiful wedding.  Of course, DC's not a bad place for a vacation either so we had lots of fun sight seeing and taking Hannah to some fun places.  (Of note, DC is an ideal location for a 1 year old who just discovered climbing stairs!)

 The first day Abi and Hannah just took a nap and saw some family.  On Friday we went into DC (LOVED the Metro and the cheap foldable stroller we bought for this trip) and did a walking tour of the monuments and memorials.  It was a gorgeous day and we had a lot of fun just as a family.  Friday night we had more family time at the rehearsal dinner too.

 The wedding was lovely - full Military style with a Marine ceremony of the swords outside the church.  The location of the reception was perfect for a Marine pilot too - the historic terminal of Ronald Reagan Airport.  It was a lovely reception and we had a blast.  We ended the night being "those parents" taking their baby home at midnight on the Metro.  Abi flew home on Sunday (for work) and Bry and Hannah stayed for a day at Arlington and another site-seeing trip to the city and the White House.  They road-tripped back home with Grandpa and Grandma Schneider - just in time for Abi's graduation from Residency.
