Wow, this was a wonderful, long couple of days. (The pictures are in backward order. They start with the evening and go to morning. oops) We started out at the Natural History Museum. The boys loved the animals, the dinosaurs, the elephant, the sharks, the rocks, the jewels, all the cool things in that incredible place. We also visited Ollie's Trolley for lunch. An old classy hamburger place that has lots of character. We saw the White House, the Capital, the Botanical Gardens (they had all these wonderful train displays and the boys were fascinated). Then off to the Memorials- Lincoln, Vietnam, Korea. We love Iwo Jima and the rainbow was magnificent, followed by a beautiful sunset. Another day we went to the Air and Space Museum. And lots of playing outside of the mission home. The Carilon bells at the Arlington Cemmetary. They are by the Iwo Jima memorial. The sunset was special because we rarely see sunsets here.
