|I spent most of yesterday|
in Washington D.C.
with my son
who is on leave...
|We drove around D.C. a bit|
snapping a few pictures
|The weather was wonderful|
especially for a summer day
|Once we finished driving around|
we parked and headed over to
National Archives Museum
(Click on links throughout this blog post to visit ALL the exhibits I mention)
|We had just finished viewing|
Declaration of Independence,
Constitution of the United States
Bill of Rights
in the Rotunda
I really enjoyed looking through the
Making Their Mark exhibit
Then we walked over to
National Museum of Natural History
My son takes good
|There were ALLOT of kids at this museum|
ALLOT of noise!
Especially at the African Elephant permanent exhibit!
|Hey look who stepped into my selfie!|
|The Hope Diamondin the Mineral Sciences Exhibit|
|Sadly, I had no gum for |
Moai Stone Figure!
Now we headed over to the
National Museum of American History
We spent allot of time at this museum.
|I actually remember going thru|
when it looked like this!
Wow! I'm too young for memories
that are sparked by photo
in Smithsonian Museums...
This pictures above are from the
FOOD: Transforming the American Table1950-2000

Very cool stuff here!
In the Flag Hall
The Marine Corp String Quartet was playing
in front of
The Star-Spangled Banner: The Flag that Inspired the National Anthem
We felt very fortunate
to have arrived during this
While viewing the flag,
we listened to live patriotic music.
It was deeply moving!
Sadly, I forgot to take a picture of the performers.
But I found
their Facebook page
full of pictures!
|We spent a good amount of time|
The Price of Freedom:Americans at War
|Part of the Berlin Wall|
|Upon exiting |
look what I spied
Artifact Walls - You Must Remember This
Harry Potter stuff!
