This weekend we took a tour of the White House. Noah has been to the White House a few times before for the Easter Egg Roll and fall garden tour, but this was his first time inside.
On the ground floor, we saw the Library, Vermeil Room and China Room.
The first room we toured on the State (second) floor was the East Room, which is the largest room in the White House. This room is used for ceremonies, receptions and press conferences.
We also saw the Green Room, Blue Room, Red Room and State Dining Room. All these rooms are used for entertaining guests.
Noah got a great view of the Washington Monument from the windows in the Red Room.
The last room on the tour was the great Cross Hall.
While in the Cross Hall, we posed under the Presidential seal that is above the entrance to the Blue Room.
On the way out of the great hall, we saw the Steinway grand piano that was given to the White House in 1938.
And here are a few photos of us at the back of the White House.
We’re so glad that we finally got to take Noah inside the White House! As a fun side note, Noah used to think that the Easter Bunny lives at the White House because of the Easter Egg Roll. He’s now OK with the President living there though since he has a cool helicopter. Ha.
