I was pretty excited to go back and show my girls (and husband) the sights and how beautiful they are. Being there for only 5 days seems like you'd see a lot, um, no. We barely scratched the surface.
|Smithsonian Air & Space Museum - they have a great hands on section just for the kids|
|World War II Memorial - 4,048 stars on this wall, each representing 100 service personnel who died or remain missing in the war. Speechless.|
|Lincoln Memorial, what a grand site and it's how I will always think of our larger-than-life President Lincoln.|
|The White House - TV doesn't do this amazing structure justice.|
|Smithsonian - American History Museum|
|Dumbo from Disneyland at the Smithsonian American History Museum - lots for kids to do at this museum|
|Dorothy's Ruby Slippers - Smithsonian American History Museum|
The first day, we were all on foot. The second, we visited Alexandria, VA. The third, we got smart and rented bikes - that was such a fun way to get around the city, even with a toddler! We rented a bike trailer which magically transformed into a stroller - GENIUS! And much easier on the feet.
I would ask my girls (9 &10) - what was your favorite part of the day? They'd respond with - all of it. I have to agree with them!
