Day one- Smithsonian Museum of American History.
The gardens around the museums were gorgeous. This was my favorite flower- the Golden Shrimp Flower!
Day 2 was the Newseum and The Lion King at the Kennedy Center.
The front pages the day of my visit:
Kind of a big deal.
A glass case of emotion!
A Segway Parade outside the Newseum!
I'd never been to the Kennedy Center. It was awesome.
I loved The Lion King! It was gorgeous and so much fun. I loved the use of masks and puppets.
Day three was the Natural History Museum and a Nats game. We saw a 3-D/IMAX film about Jerusalem, which was narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch. It was a lovely film. The museum was really too crowded to enjoy that day. I almost had a panic attack and had to leave early. I managed to see the gems exhibit.
The Nats game was fun. It looked like they were going to lose, but they rallied and beat the Pirates 4-3.
Last day we celebrated Katie's birthday at Cuba Libre. Lots of great traditional and modern Cuban food! And a lot of rum. We were stuffed.
It was a fun weekend, but I'm exhausted. I must have walked about 15 miles!
