A Trip to the U.S. Capital

on June 19, 2012

Some of you may know that this year is the Girl Scouts 100th anniversary. So, to celebrate, the Girl Scouts hosted the world’s largest sing-a-long in Washington D.C. on the National Mall last weekend.

Girls from all around the world came to enjoy the Girl Scouts anniversary and “Rock the Mall.”

Everybody did this thing called SWAPs. Basically what you do is you make a bunch of silly pins and trade with other girls. It seems odd, but it is really cool when you have a bunch of pins on your bag or shirt from Pennsylvania and West Virginia and Florida and North Carolina and South Dakota and- well you get the point. 

Everybody didn’t spend their entire day melting in the blazing hot sun on the Mall.  People went to museums and went to memorials. I went a few myself like the Art museum and the American history museum. We also went to say hi to Tom Jefferson and sup to Abe.

The nine hour bus-drive was absolutely AWESOME! I met a few new friends and we talked and talked about things that had no meaning whatsoever.

We went to the zoo, Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson Memorial, National Museum of Art, National American History Museum, World War II Memorial, Korean War Memorial, Vietnam War Memorial, and I think that’s it.

In my opinion, the best thing about this trip was my friends. Making new friends, chatting and talking with them, getting to know them, and so on.

Make new friends, but keep the old. One ins silver and the others gold.

A ring is round, it has no end. That’s how long I want to be your friend

Back at home, the fat cat seemed to get larger and they both were a bit skittish, but I think they missed us.
