Everywhere a sign

This Saturday Sammy and I headed into Washington, DC, with my brother and his friend, Jim, to attend the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear.  We drove to Alexandria and then took the metro to the Arlington Cemetery station and walked the 2 1/2 miles to the National Mall where the rally was taking place.


There were tens of thousands of people in attendance--it was rather overwhelming but for the most part everyone was very courteous and respectful. We worked our way through the crowd to the Air and Space Museum and set up shop there.  We weren't able to hear much of anything other than the occasional musical interlude, so we entertained ourselves with people watching and checking out some of the awesome signs. Here were a few of my favorites:

I was initially worried that the crowd would be too much for Sammy, but he handled himself with aplomb.  We even managed to get in a few very public diaper changes without any fussing.  I'm glad we were able to go and be a part of such an awesome gathering of people.

Yes, what an amazing experience, so glad I could be apart of it. I love the Obama/More Cow Bell sign!

So sorry we missed each other!

How cool! And brave of you to bring Sammy. Living in NH we get a lot of presidential primary visits, but they are usually when I've got the kids, and I'm afraid they will have a meltdown by a secret service person after waiting in line for three hours.

I'm so jealous! I really wanted to go to the rally, but we had a packed weekend with Halloween activities. I was definitely there in spirit!
