  • 1. Annie’s DC Adventure Part 2
  • 2. Inauguration Day  Early in the morning me and mommy got up to go to the Metro. Then when we got off, we all went to find the closest jumbotron to the Capital. Then we waited and waited for more than 4 hours!
  • 3. Friends we made  The people next to us in the crowd shared their handwarmers with us. They let me stand on their camp stool. Soon we found out that one of the people next to us was on Pushing Daisies, a TV show! We were shocked.
  • 4. The Mall on Inauguration Day
  • 5. Swearing In  We got to see Obama sworn in. The people in the crowd were screaming happily. Some of the people booed Bush and Cheney. My mom told me not to because it was not respectful.
  • 6. We were lucky!  We had a good spot on the Mall. Some people who had tickets got stuck in the “Purple Tunnel of Doom”. If you wonder what that is, it’s for all the people who had purple tickets for the Inauguration. The line was so long, they did not all get in.
  • 7. Crowd Pictures
  • 8. Inauguration crowd  Everyone in the crowd was very friendly. They all wanted to see Obama sworn in. Millions of people came from all over the world. Everyone was wearing their best Obama clothes.
  • 9. Museum time  After we saw the Inauguration, we went to one of the most amazing museums in the world: the Smithsonian Natural History Museum. The Smithsonians are free museums for the people of the United States. Everything in them belongs to the American people.
  • 10. Deserted Mall  After everyone left the Mall, it was empty and full of trash. There were no trash cans because the Secret Service had taken them all away to keep people from hiding bombs.
  • 11. Crowd Confusion  It was time to go home. Everyone was trying to get out of DC. We were all stuck trying to get into the Metro station. I almost got pushed away from my mom. Luckily some soldiers helped my mom keep me safe.
  • 12. McDonald’s Relief  After a LONG day, we went to McDonald’s. The Inauguration parade was on the TV there.
  • 13. The day after  We went to a Turkish restaurant and had delicious food. The restaurant is owned by a friend of my Granny and Papa, and he was happy to see us after 5 years!
  • 14. Quilts  We saw an exhibit of quilts for Obama. I loved the swirly quilt. You weren’t allowed to take any pictures of the quilts. My mom’s friend Ellen from New Jersey went with us.
  • 15. Chinatown  We saw Chinatown in DC. It was very amazing because we went to Starbucks, and the sign had Chinese writing.
  • 16. National Portrait Gallery  In this museum, we saw the famous HOPE portrait of Obama, and also art made out of license plates. The license plates say the preamble to the Constitution. “we the people…”
  • 17. Family Reunion #3  The next day, I met 3 more great great aunts! One of them gave me a presidential coin of the 6th president. My great great aunt Millie also gave me a 100 year old cat statue.
  • 18. Homeward Bound  We went to the airport. We saw a cardboard Obama statue. People were taking turns taking their picture with him.
  • 19. The ending day  On the way home, I played on my DS and got a lot of use out of it. I almost fell asleep in the airport waiting to change planes.
  • 20. Summary  The trip was very exciting and tiring. It was neat to see our first African- American President sworn in. Meeting many people was very fun. Seeing DC is one of the things I will remember for the rest of my life.
  • 21. The End! To the school of CSG
