They were soooo excited! Every single white building that they saw they were all screaming, "That's the White House! There it is!" And to every black man they yelled, "There's Obama! I saw the President!" Unfortunately, they weren't kidding. They have no concept of big cities and stuff like that so it was pretty weird. Also... on the way there... every tiny bridge that we crossed, whether it was over a creek or a river or whatever, they would yell, "Oh my gosh! This is my first time on the Bay Bridge! It's awesome!". They had no idea. Their jaws dropped when we actually went over it!
So, needless to say, it was a great experience for them. They didn't care that the Wizards (the lowest ranked team in the NBA) played against the Cavaliers (the second lowest ranked team in the NBA). They were just excited to see that many people in one place and to witness a professional game and buy a souvenir. Most of them only had a few bucks from their parents so they just bought a small sweatband or something. But they were happy! And they will never forget this trip!
