Since DC is a close enough drive from where we are, we thought it would be fun to hang out down there after church service on Christmas Eve. There was a lot more traffic getting into the city than we thought there would be, but it was a fun-filled evening.
We decided to once again buy tickets for ICE! this year... they are VERY sold out and the prices went up from last year (not really surprising considering what an instant hit the event became) so needless to say we were VERY grateful for military discount.
I saw many small children (I'm talking infant-5yr olds here), my husband and I agreed that if we actually lived in the area, we probably wouldn't take the kids until they were old enough to remember. Kind of like our views on Disneyland... too much money for a memory they won't have. Who knows, maybe your view on that changes once you actually have children?
Here are a few shots from the event:
If you are in the area and can get tickets, I once again would recommend you go. It is quite a sight to see!
