Capturing the Best in Ourselves

View from My Camera - Apr 9

The reason we went to DC was to visit Joe's best friend from Law School, David.  David is currently a Fellow in the White House and we haven't seen him in a while.  He was very kind to give us a tour of the West Wing Thursday night.  We were all so excited.  We were able to see the Oval Office, Roosevelt Room, Cabinet Room, Mess Hall, Third Floor offices, Press Room, etc.  I am sure that I misnamed everything!  Dewey made it his mission to speak to every Secret Service agent and asked several questions.  I told him that he was very brave.  I was so proud of all of them.  Here are some of our pictures.  Of course, I didn't have a flash, but they hold many wonderful memories for us all.  We had the best time!!! 090409a

Here we are (OK, I can't remember the name) but standing on the passageway between the Oval Office and the Presidents Quarters (I think).  If you actually saw it, you would recognize it.  The Washington Monument is in the back and the Oval Office is behind them to the right.  090410f


Now we are in the Press Room.  It was a lot smaller than I thought it would be.  Oh, and I was only able to photograph in certain places.  I think they only allow you to photograph areas that are already photographed by non White House staff.

Our view when we left.  Beautiful...
