Okay, I'm back after three days in Washington D.C. for a Marching Band trip and it was awesome!! The First day we left Pulaski High School at 7:00 and got to Washington at about 5:00 give or take. We proceeded to have a tour of all of the Monuments, Memorials, and such things. After that we went to the hotel and slept that night (rumors are that some high-schoolers ordered pizza and didn't get caught). That comig morning we got up and had a huge buffet breakfast in the ballroom of the hotel. We then left to go to Washington (our hotel was in Maryland) and we got there and suited up, got our pictures taken, and practiced. Mr Jennings (band director) gave us this awesome pep talk about being the best band around performing in the best city in the best country in the world. We played our song perfectly for a practice run and the bands aroud us applauded. We proseeded to march off of the side street and down Constitution avenue to over millions of people (there and watching television). We played the best we had ever played that day and the people AT THE NEWS DESK prounced our name Not the Pulaski Blue Devils, the Poolasskee Blue Devils. I guess we pronounce it wrong (Pull-as-kye) but still...We then did a personal tour of the city and returned for the most awesome fireworks I've ever seen in my life. My favorite part of that whole trip apart from the Parade, fireworks, and the Air and Space museum, was this guy outside the White House, speaking gibberish, holding up a sign that said that G. W. Bush and Marion Berry started the War, and that Bush ate human meat. Yeah, that wierd. The last day was mostly a returning day and this was the day where everything went so totally wrong. We got up, ate breakfast, the fire alarm went off, it was undefineable so we had to leave the hotel. It ended up being a false alarm and we continued our meal, behind schedule. We then proceded to the busses to go to a surprise that our band director planned for us, then Arlington National Cemetary to see the changing of the guard at the Toub of the unknown soldier and to set as wreath there. We went to the surprise, Dulles airport, home of the newest addition to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. It was awesome. We proceeded outside to find that the busses were lost and one had broken down. We were WAAAAY behind schedule when the 3 out of 4 busses came. We had sudden changes in plan. We first decided that the senior high school people would go and not the junior high people. So we got to go back into the museum, for a little while. Then we decided to squeeze all of the junior high kids onto the remaining busses. We went around the loop to find that the 4th bus was running. The junior high bus had already left tso we put the remaining people on the newest bus with the engine malfunction. It broke down three times on the highway before we realized that a couple of kids didn't hear any changes in plan and were still at the Airport!! We got them and went to Arlington. We missed all of the changing of the guard and couldn't present the wreath but we were okay. We left for home without any bus mishaps and overall it was the most awesome trip I have ever been on.

Ah, I love going Washington D.C.! I didn't doubt that you would have a good time. I remember when I went on my class trip two years ago and saw Freddie Mercury's pants in the Hard Rock Cafe. I loved going to all of the Smithsonians, but man, that was definately the best part of my trip!
