Another update! This was Matthew's first time to see our nation's capital and of course, he loved it! It was a beautiful sunny day and we had a great time walking around. Sadly, the American History museum is closed until the fall, so the museum Matthew has most wanted to go to his entire life is a no go on this round. BUT... I suppose that means we'll be back! We did check out the Air and Space museum and then walked around to some of the memorials. It was about a 40 minute drive to the subway stop and then about 15 minutes into the city -- its so close! So... we WILL return!
For now, here are a few of the shots we got! Most of these are by monsieur Matthew- you have to be armed with a camera on your first time in DC!
The Wright Bro's plane- we're talking the first thing to fly made by man in the form of an airplane that we know about! WOW!
This is at the VERY lovely World War II Monument. This is the newest monument in DC and I hadn't seen it until this trip. Here is a picture of Matthew standing by Kansas- there is a picture of his Grandpa Teter standing next to it (he served as a bomb-loader during WWII in England and is, as you guessed, from Kansas).
