Jenny and I decided that we wanted to go to DC for the day. Both to get out of the house and to give Larry some peace and quiet to write his report!
First we went to the Smithsonian Natural History museum. It was there that we discovered that Alex was NOT a fan of the dinosaurs. We walked around looking at all the different exhibits. Kyle absolutely loved it, the little ones were not as big of fans! After a quick lunch at the museum, we walked around outside for little while. The boys saw the Carosel on the lawn at the National Mall and begged us to go on it! I rode with both boys, while Jenny relaxed on the sidelines.
When we were done walking, we went to the Space Museum. Because Larry has been anxiously waiting to take Alex there, Alex and I only took a quick look at the planes and then browsed in the gift shop. Jenny, Katelyn and Kyle were able to walk around a little bit of the museum until we decided it was time to get our sleepy kids home.
We rode the Metro back to our car, all while Alex was yelling "choo-choo" - he thought it was a train!
Here are a few pictures of our day in DC:
