I said we were going to squeeze every possible thing in that we could and we spent three days doing just that. People keep asking me what my favorite thing was and, to be honest, I don't think I can pinpoint one thing. I can tell about some of the great stuff we did so here goes.
We saw lots of monuments and it was every bit as cool seeing them in person as I thought it would be. The Washington monument can, literally, be seen from everywhere. I never realized just how tall it was but soon found out when we were walking up to it. It stands just a little over 555 feet tall.
Probably my other favorite display(which we weren't allowed to photograph) was The Star-Spangled Banner.Very interesting.
This capsule was at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. Now that's a cool place! It was the capsule that john Glenn became the first American to orbit the earth. I don't think I would've had the nerve to be put in a space craft that small and hurled into space.
This is Julia Child's kitchen. Her actual kitchen. Exactly as she left it when she died. It is quite fascinating to see her handwriting on papers on the counter.
By the time we got back around to the white house it was dark. Boo! So this was all we got.
