DC Day 3 - Old Post Office, Arlington National Cemetery

Since it was our 14th anniversary, we planned to watch a baseball game (doesn't every couple? That's what we did on our honeymoon too!), but unfortunately the Washington Generals game was rained out (despite a beautiful day!). So we met the Igels at the Old Post Office to check out the tower and view. It's a gorgeous old building with the second best view of the city, plus the Bells of Congress in the tower, plus a Junior Ranger program.
Then we visited Arlington National Cemetery and saw the changing of the guards at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers, JFK's grave, and the Robert E Lee Memorial.
Did you know you can see the Lee Memorial from the back of the Lincoln Memorial? Thanks to the Junior Rangers, we do now!
