Day 2 in DC

Day 2 started out with a rainy wait to get into the National Archives. Photography is not aloud in the archives so I have no pictures to show. It was so moving to see the documents that our country is founded on! It was also impressive to see all the things our ancestors kept. Letters, patents, presidential memos, letters to & from presidents, and on & on.

Next we braved the rain to visit the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History!

Bon Appetite! The kitchen of Julia Childs!

For all my coffee drinking friends, coffee lids through the years!

A whole exhibit on travel through the years in America!

Mile markers like this can be found along National Road (US40). We saw several along our route to DC!

A map of America's Railways in 1875!

The Henry Electromagnet.

Light bulbs invented throughout the years!

An Apple II computer! I used one of these in high school!

Dorothy's Ruby Slippers.

Archie Bunker's chair.

Miss Piggy!

I had a Sony Walkman just like this!

A map of the Revolutionary War.

A World War I exhibit. I missed a lot of these exhibits but Hubby & the kids enjoyed them.

We noticed some of the flowers are starting to bloom! It looks like spring is finally coming!

One last look at the National Mall before we headed back to the Metro station.
