Our Trip to Washington

Calamity on Constitution Avenue

slide2
To celebrate

the coming of Spring,

we decided

to meet at Kelly and Dave’s

and see Washington D.C.

as a family.

slide3
Upon our safe arrival,

Jasper greeted us

with her usual

unbridled enthusiasm

slide4
The next day, following a hearty (albeit challenging)

lunch, we set off for our family adventure…

slide5
Our first stop was to the new

World War II monument.

There’s Dad

pausing,

in a moment

of reflection…

wondering

where he might find

himself a beer.

slide6
After finding said beer,

Dad coaxed us into

this off-center shot

with the

Washington Monument*

in the background.

*Notice the marble is two different colors?

Watch the History Channel, to learn why!

Hint: It’s not due to weathering…

slide7
But following our afternoon of fun…

…we found Kelly’s car had a flat tire--

slide9
And you know Mom…

Everything’s funny to her!

So Kelly and I took charge

of the situation…

slide10
Grabbing the cell phone, we began our search for a lug wrench.

Kelly also called for backup in the event our mission failed…

slide11
Lucky for us, Dave was at work just blocks away –

he rushed to our rescue armed with the missing

lug wrench!

slide12
But, alas,

it was not the right size…

…so I took

a break

from the game

to give him

a hand.

slide13
Thankfully, the Triple-A Man arrived, but the clock was still ticking…

…if it wasn’t fixed by 4, we’d be towed*!

*All parked cars – broken down or not – must be cleared by 4 in order to accommodate rush-hour traffic… What silly Republican made that law???

slide15
It’s just 4:01 and he’s already writing tickets!

This is when I offered to chain myself to the bumper, but there was no need for civil disobedience: our tire was fixed!

slide16
“Thanks, Triple-A Man*!”

*Course, we’re not sure who he was-- the guy had no ID and drove an unmarked van...

But the $20 he charged to fix the tire was a heck of a lot cheaper than the $80 to tow it!

slide17
While Mom and Dad distracted the cop, Kelly and Dave hurriedly stashed the unused jack and golf clubs…
slide18
And just in time, too!

Finally…we were able to return home –
