Noah Does DC Tour 2012

Noah boarded the bus on Thursday May 16th at 8pm.
He was at the base of Lincoln Memorial at 6am Thursday morning.

Thank you Mr. Eichorn and Mr. Ingle for lifting Noah and his stroller and carrying him up the steps. (The elevator wasn't running until 10am) So, Noah could get up close to see President Abraham Lincoln.
