Washington D.C. wrap up!

On our 3rd day in D.C., we explored the Smithsonian Museums, as well as the Capitol building. The air and space museum was pretty cool, they had a lot of the original artifacts that I had heard about all my life. Like the Bell X-1 and the Spirit of St. Louis! After this we looked around outside the Capitol building.

Here's a crazy little story. We were standing around the step of the Capitol ... Dad was just asking around for a bathroom, and the security guard that he just happened to be talking to (Dad can talk to just about anybody) told him that if he went to a certain area and asked to see the senate in session, they would let us into the capitol building! It sounds crazy, but before the night was out, we had sat in the senate meeting room while they were debating about health-care! Crazy. Dad has the touch, I tell you. :)

Anyway, here are some pics of the day:

This is the flag that inspired our national anthem as it flew over for McHenry in 1812...

It was an exciting tour of D.C. this week, and I am very thankful to be living in the Good 'ol U S of A!
