Long overdue. Way back in April during spring break we took a four day road trip to Washington, DC.
Grace and I were last in DC together probably around 2005 or 2006. This time we decided to leave our car parked at the hotel and take the subway in and around DC.
Although the Air & Space Museum is nothing to gawk at, all the museums are free so why not. Well, it was spring break so they were all very crowded.
CJ’s favorite president.
We severely underestimated the walk from museum row to the Lincoln Memorial and found ourselves a long distance away from the subway in all directions. This was a tiring day.
Day 2 we went to the DC Zoo which was surprisingly large and well stocked with all the major animals minus any dinosaurs.
Including a couple of kung-fu pandas.
Day 3 we went to the Museums of American History and Natural History.
This Museum of Natural History is much better than the one in New York City.
We actually had planned for a three day trip, but were able to squeeze out a fourth day. Unfortunately our first hotel couldn’t accommodate the extra day, so in between the third and fourth day we relocated across the street and stayed at this really nice Hilton hotel that gave us free breakfast buffet vouchers which was excellent.
We just kept pigging out.
On the drive home we decided to stop off in Maryland and visit their Children’s Museum.
Can’t get enough of them dinos.
We keep vowing the never vacation in cities until the kids are older, but we can’t resist, lol!
