where: flight from des moines to d.c., sightseeing around arlington, va

the day started with an early flight, and my mom, eric and i were surprised at our luck when we got upgraded to first class. let me tell you, it’s a whole different kind of flight up there. they hang up your coat and hand you a blanket and a basket full of food. i soaked it in because it will probably never happen again!

we landed in d.c. a couple hours later, checked into our hotel and then ate thanksgiving dinner at joe theismann’s. the weather was unbelievably gorgeous for a walk around arlington national cemetery and the marine corps war memorial (aka the iwo jima memorial). it was a quiet day in the city, but i can’t imagine a better place to celebrate thanksgiving day. my heart is thankful for all the men and women who have fought and continue to fight for our freedom.
