The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, 38, appeared in Washington D.C. just days after her spiritual trip to Armenia. Kim was baptized along with her kids in her native country and shared her experiences on Instagram.

"Thank you Armenia for such a memorable trip. So blessed to have been baptized along with my babies at Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin, Armenia's main cathedral which is sometimes referred to as the Vatican of the Armenian Apostolic Church. This church was built in 303 AD," the KKW Beauty founder wrote alongside one pic of her family. Kanye did not join his family for the vacation but Kim's sister Kourtney tagged along for the ride.
