Days 4 - 6 in DC

Days 4 and 5 were uneventful conference days.

We went to a red, white and blue dance.

Passed out some awards.

We also did the typical conference session type things and since this is a fraternity event, we had some business sessions and I started campaigning for a national office. See my super cool campaign sticker?

(For some reason, the colors didn't load right when I uploaded it, but the Gotta Have is purple and the RVP is more of an orange)

Friday night rolled around and Alex and I headed to the Washington Monument to do our tour. We got a really cool view of the city:

When we finished we headed off to meet everyone for dinner before our entire fraternity headed over to the Air and Space Museum. Caught some pictures along the way:

The coolest thing at the Air and Space Museum (at least I thought so) were the simulators. Brandi and I did two fo them. Our recommendation is to go in order. We didn't and were let down with the first one (after we had done the 3rd one). The 3rd one is awesome! You spend most of your time hanging upside down trying to shoot stuff. We however, shot nothing. Very sad.

Here are some random highlights from the Air and Space Museum.

After we finished at the museum we did a night tour of all the monuments.

The World War II is one of my favorites I think. They have some awesome quotes throughout the memorial that you can find on my Flickr page.

The Korean War Memorial was awesome at night, but I wish I could have seen it during the day too. The etchings of all the soldier in the wall were really cool.

After this it was a cab ride to find some food and to pass out for the night. My feet were absolutely killing me all week from all the walking I did!
