Road Trip 2014
Day 5: Washington D.C.
National Air & Space Museum
National Museum of the American Indian
My dad and I took my three youngest kids, my niece, and her boyfriend down to D.C. on the Metro for the day. I'll let the pictures tell the story, though it is only a small sampling of everything we saw! Great day!

I definitely fit in better here than at Air & Space. I love people, history, and art. I would have enjoyed more time here all by myself. I also would have loved an extended solo trip to the National Gallery of Art. Maybe next time...
