Spring Break

The girls and I had a wonderful spring break.  Uncle Matt  showed us and cousin Sarah so many things in our nations capitol.  Washington D. C. was wonderful and beautiful.  We got to spend three fabulous, tiring days wandering and seeing and learning.  We visited the National Zoo, the Washington Monument, the World War II Memorial, the Lincoln Monument, the National Museum of Natural History, the National Gallery of Art, and the National Portrait Gallery and American Art Museum.  All five of us piled onto the bench of a bicycle taxi (boy was that an adventure) when we were hot and tired and needed to get to the Metro station before we dropped in a heap. 

Sore feet and screaming joints somewhat limited what we fit into the time.  I really thinks we could easily fill another week or more with all that we WANTED to see.  Oh well, I guess we will just have to go back a few times in the next few years.  Maybe next time we can do some of our touring on the bicycles available to rent, ooh, or maybe on Segways.

Crazy fun girls
