My last full day in Washington DC.

Today has been an awesome day!!!!! We hit the two Museums. Natural History and American History. We even hit a few memorials. The most touching experience I had was visiting the WWII Memorial. It was breathtaking. I had the privilege of talking with a WWII Veteran. His name was Wesley O. Niccolls, Sr.

Connecticut Honor Flight 2009 WWII Memorial Visit 23 mAY 2009 039

I enjoyed hearing him talk about what he did in the war and hearing about his adventures since. I admit that after we spoke and turned to walk away I got choked and my eyes were full of tears. I know I will never see that remarkable man again. I have tears in my eyes now thinking about him. I should have given him a huge hug before we left! He deserved it. I know that some day I will regret not giving him one. I already do.

We took 100's of pictures today. I am sorry but I cannot get them to transfer over tonight for some odd reason. I would only post a teaser picture so that's okay. When I get home I plan on making a HUGE Flickr slideshow for you!

Just know that I really appreciate Country Inns & Suites for giving my family this wonderful experience! YOU ROCK COUNTRY INN & SUITES. I will also be typing up a lovely review of Country Inn & Suites.

I've never been to D.C. I should make a trip there myself. Sounds like you had a great time!

Michelle, thank you so much for sharing your story, especially about the WWII vet. My grandfather (92!) is a WWII vet, and everyday I try to take a little bit of his memory and store it forever. They truly are The Greatest Generation.

Thank you for sharing your family with ours -- I can't wait to read your full review!
