Every year on the day before Memorial Day, hundreds of thousands of motorcyclists descend on Washington, D.C. for Rolling Thunder, the world's largest single-day motorcycle event. Rolling Thunder started in 1988 as a show of support for service members who were left behind after the Vietnam War and has evolved into a display of patriotism and respect for all who defend our country.
We decided to hop in the car last week to go check it out. Bikes were parked along every sidewalk and street in the DC area. The kids were in awe with the number of motorcycles. We got great seats right along Constitution Avenue and arrived just as the police motorcycles lead the pack.
It was a fun experience. Jonathan really loved it, but Kaitlyn was not happy with the deafening sounds of the loud engines so we didn't stay too long.
