MrPeachez was a good Dad this week. In fact he was stupendous. MrPeachez took littlepeach#1 and her two best friends (they are highschool seniors) up to Washington, DC and took them to the Inauguration. That meant braving the traffic into DC for 200 miles and then on the day of, walking into DC from Pentagon City, just a mere 4 miles away.
Factor in the freezing wind chill and, well, sounds like party time to me!
They did not have tickets to anything, they were just 4 of the millions of souls to gather for the event.
They staked a claim on a little piece of dirt in front of the Washington Monument.
The girls were so excited, they were numb to the cold. For about 15 minutes.
That's littlepeach#1 (Georgia) in the middle, her buds Claudia and Becca, left to right.
They left their digs in Pentagon City at 7:30 AM and arrived at the Monument at around 9 AM. Then they waited.
They spent the next few hours huddled in a pile for warmth.
"Was it worth it?" I asked on their return. Let's just say they are all still grinning from ear to ear about their big adventure!
