Washington DC has been quite surreal! I’ve been looking at photos of all of this for so many years and now we’re here! Yesterday we went to the American History and the Natural History museums at the Smithsonian. Both were good but today was amazing. We started here.
The Library of Congress is unbelievably amazing, even if we had to be up by 6 AM to get there for our tour! Here are the kids listening intently, enjoying some of it every minute!
Our next stop was the Botanical Gardens. It too is gorgeous. I have lots of pretty flower photos.
Our third tour of the day was here.
Do I need to tell anyone that this is the Capital? We did a tour and then got to sit in the gallery of the House of Representatives, even though they weren’t in session.
Oh, and we walked a lot! At least most of us did.
I know our country has flaws, but I love it. There are some amazing people who sacrificed so much to establish our government. Seeing these gorgeous buildings and the statues in the Capital building made all the history I’ve learned so much more real. I’m looking forward to the next couple of days, even if my feet aren’t.
Oh, and for all of you that talk about knitting on your commutes, I got to knit on the Metro! More on that later. I need to put my poor, tired feet up for a while.
