Despite having no political affiliation, we were invited to attend the traditional Presidential Turkey Pardon in the White House Rose Garden last week. Thought I'd post up a few photos.
The turkeys were taking questions for media day at the Willard Intercontinental Hotel where they had their own suite.
After passing the check points on the day of the pardon, we walked in along the East Wing.
The South Portico.
The view of the Mall from the South Lawn.
We were admitted into the Rose Garden early to see the National Thanksgiving Turkey deep in thought and pacing just before the ceremony.
I think he was a bit worried that the pardon might not go off as planned.
Much to the bird's relief, the Trumps showed up on time and granted a full pardon.
We mingled a bit and offered our congratulations to the turkey for his new lease on life.
I took this last photo as we were leaving. Turned out to be a beautiful day - the Rose Garden and Oval Office can be seen in the background left of the large tree.
