Well, we made it to the March and it was an incredible experience. I will be posting more about our experience and more pictures soon.
We're still in D.C. and trying to get as much sightseeing in as we can. Two of my daughters have never been here.
At the end of the March, at the Supreme Court, I was able to meet (thanks to cell phones) Denise Hunnell of Catholic Matriarch in my Domestic Church!!! I have to tell you that Denise's blog is one of my favorites. How awesome it was to meet her in person at the March!!! Thanks, Denise, for making it happen. We were able to have sandwiches at Potbelly's afterwards for some quieter conversation. It's so much fun to meet blogging friends in person.
Incredibly, we arrived at the Mall a little early when people were just starting to assemble.
Would you believe that, in addition to Denise, we met TWENTY people we knew from Michigan at the March. It was absolutely amazing. And these were people we know well... Good friends of my son John, Lizzie's camp counselor, kids from our grade school, kids from the high school, the mother of my oldest son's roommate, and several people from our parish. We hadn't spoken to any of these people before the March and had no idea they would be there. It was like a reunion.
John had so many friends there we called him. I said, "Hey, John, how come you're in Ann Arbor when all your friends are in Washington?" They gave him a hard time:-) (He has a concert in 10 days and felt he needed the practice time.)
Anyway, more pictures to come in the next few days.....
