We had an amazing opportunity to go with the Young Farmers and Ranchers of the Utah Farm Bureau to Washington DC for five days. While there, we visited many memorials, historical sites and museums. We were able to visit with our state congressmen and senators directly and talk about our concerns and they told us what they were doing about it. We learned a lot and are so grateful we were able to go. We appreciate all those who supported us while on our trip!
Arlington Cementery where the YF&R did a wreath ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. This was a really touching experience and made us deeply appreciate those who fight for freedom.
The White House at night. It looks a little smaller than I thought it'd be.
Abraham Lincoln Memorial
Korean War Memorial
The pew George Washington's family rented at Christ's Church
Mount Vernon. We loved visiting the home of George Washington. I didn't know he wanted to be a farmer.
Holocaust Museum. This is an amazing but sad museum.
Gettysburg. We were able to drive through but the snow canceled our tours. We'd love to go back and see it!
