Last night we left for our annual fall trip. Ray originally wanted to leave at 2; we left at 8:45. My flight home from the wedding arrived at midnight on Monday, I went to bed at 2am & was back up at 6am. We had to drop Ray off at work & then spend our day at CC. After Picking up Ray we went home to finish packing.
We drove through the night with a little stop to sleep in the van. For breakfast we had a cereal
picnic just over the border in Virginia.
We came across a lot of cotton fields on our drive.
we were driving we made a spur of the moment decision to stop at Arlington national cemetery. In our traveling clothes/pajamas & all.
It was really neat watching the changing of the guard at the tomb of the Unknown soldier. I loved how quiet & respectful the large crowd was during the ceremony.
Ray has a great uncle, Silvester Piccione, buried at the cemetery & we visited his gravesite.
We're now on the final part of our drive today & will be staying with jen & gabe in the Philadelphia area tonight!
