16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
My daughter Adalyn and son Solomon in front of the Heidelberg Castle in Germany getting to explore the world because their daddy serves in the Army

My husband is a United States Army Military Policeman and we are stationed in Germany at the time of this picture. On this day my son, daughter and I went to go visit the Heidelberg castle together. This picture is a shot taken right in front of the castle and I absolutely love this picture as it shows how close the two of them are and how happy we were that day. It was absolutely breath taking to see the ruins and the views of the town from the castle. It was an amazing memory.
