National Cathedral
Today was my second time visiting the National Cathedral and I love it even more the second time. I was thrilled to add one more photo to "Me in D.C." gallery.

We will remember this as being the first place that Caroline decided to use the potty. It is like something just clicked with her. She will be able to say she potty trained her self at the National Cathedral.

I know my list of "must sees in D.C." is long but I need to add this too. Don't miss it. They will open the parking garage in 2 weeks so it will make it much easier to visit!

my favorite photo from our first visit.

Beautiful place! Maybe I'll visit someday. Great pix. You looking down, camera looking up is a cool shot too. Cousins are adorable all together (your baby looks like a doll!) -ciao

I love seeing the site in DC. We use to live in Maine, but we never took a trip to Washington. I was only there once with the youth or a temple trip (pre-Boston temple). Thanks for sharing your blog and showing me around.

What a stunning building. I love that you're taking all these self-portraits in D.C., what a great idea.

What an amazing building! I have only been to DC once - when I was 12 years old. Unfortunatly, I never visited that building. Must go again sometime...

I love visiting cathedrals. One of my favorite parts of traveling. I will be sure not to miss that one when we get out there.

How weird. I was looking at those pics and thinking, 'That is SUCH a clean-looking exterior!', so I Wikipedia'ed it and found out the foundation stone was laid as recently as 1907 and the last stone was laid in 1990. I forget what a 'young' country the USA is.

That's hilarious that Caroline started her potty training there. Brings a whole new meaning to the phrase 'Holy Water'. LOL.

Hi Kristie! I found your blog through Laura B. and I'm addicted. I especially love your traditions tabs. (I know Dave and Lanessa and the Trammels, too, small world.) Great pics of the Cathedral--that is one of my favorite places in DC. I love the Prodigal Son statue there.

Kari said...

Great pictures!! All the kiddo's look like they were enjoying themselves and that building is so incredible with all of the detail. I LOVE the arches! It is beautiful and I love the self-portrait at the beginning!
