The West Wing

February 25, 2008 Sarah Coggins

Trent & I went to Virginia this past weekend to spend time with my family. One of the reasons for our trip was a visit to the White House. My cousin is on the White House staff and had arranged to give us a tour of the West Wing. We poked our heads into the Cabinet Room, Roosevelt Room, and even the Oval Office. Unfortunately, photos inside (except for the Press Briefing Room) are off limits.

Here are Trent & I in the Press Briefing Room:

    Looks like a fun visit. I was bummed too when we went and I couldn't take any photos of the inside.

    Neat! We only live about 2 hours from Washington DC now. I'd really love to make a trip down there to see the sights. Looks like you had a great time!
