The kids were hilarious- hopelessly obsessed with Jimmer (can I ever escape Jimmer-mania?!), but sweet.
I almost missed being in Primary. Almost.
Post-church we had a snack and hit the road to Arlington to visit the Arlington Cemetery (very aptly named).
Aside from being robbed by the parking attendant. ($7.50 for two hours?! How dare you?.)
This isn't any old cemetery- former presidents are buried here, along with some Supreme Court justices, and of course, our military veterans.
Soldiers who are either MIA or unidentifiable are honored here.
It is perpetually guarded, with a changing of the guard every half hour (during the warm seasons, every hour on the off-season).
The ceremony is executed with extreme precision, and it always draws a crowd.
Martha Washington's great-granddaughter lived here with her husband Robert E. Lee.
One picture inside was most curious. Why is Robert E. Lee a girl in this picture? Did someone in the printing process switch the photos? A need a historian to explain this to me. I must know.
It was really awe inspiring because it was so large.
It was modeled after this iconic picture.
I'm glad we made it, even if it took us a bit to get there.
I've heard that accidents on the freeway are caused by the stark beauty of the temple.
I totally get that.
