United States Daughters of 1812

My mom and I spent April 3 - 9 in Washington DC to attend the national Associate's Council of the National Society United States Daughters 1812.
I am the Alaska state president so it's about time I went ;)  Here's some photos:
Me on day 1 of meetings - my first time to Associate Council.

Day 2 of meetings. I had to give my state president report in front of everyone! I lived through it.

 The building next door also owned by the National society. It is used as a library and museum.

We ran an errand early this morning and saw this guy leaving the pond and making his way somewhere else. The Muscovy ducks, more about them ...
