Do you see those super cute blondies
climbing the White House security fence?
they got us arrested Tuesday afternoon!!!!!!!!
We arrived in DC Monday afternoon and had a great day of site seeing.
Then on Tuesday we decided we needed to see the White House.
On our way there, we stopped off for coffee and hot choc...
I think the sugar may have made them a little hyper.
They were climbing trees and monuments the whole way there,
and chasing any sign of wildlife.
So, we get to the fence and what do my 2 youngest monkeys do...
they decide to climb it.
I snapped a shot and then looked away to change the settings.
Immediately a secret service officer charged us...
"Lady, lady, are those your kids?!?!?!
Seriously, do you want a picture of that?!?!?"
"This isn't your backyard!!!
You need to respect the fence!!!!!"
He whipped out the handcuffs and away we went in the cruiser.
It was quite an experience...or maybe it was just a good april fool's joke on you.
We didn't get arrested, but the rest of the story is true...
so if you are visiting the White House...
DON'T CLIMB THE FENCE.
Apparently it is illegal,
or so we were so rudely informed.
You got me! Good to know, though...I get to go in a few weeks with my daughter's school group.
HAHA good one!!
And I feel stupid. 🙂
Too funny!! We took our kids nearly 4 years ago and had a blast!!

Hello Jocelyn!! Thanks so much for visiting my little blog...I love yours and yes they lost their sense of humor after 9/11 in DC. I live just outside in Warrenton, Va. Dc is a lovely place to visit..did you see the cherry blossoms at the Tidal Basin? Gorgeous!
The post with the samoas recipe made me drool...;-) Your family is beautiful. I really loved the look on Dad's face as the kids climb the fence...clueless as to whats going on behind him?? Too funny.

Happy Cherry Blossoms from a DC-area blogger! Hope you're having a fun time in our wonderful city. Did you get down to see the blossoms yet? I've got snaps posted today. Yup, even the natives feel the urge to be tourists from time-to-time. SITS sent me by, and I'm glad they did!
