We had a great week, though, despite the cold. We went to the three main Smithsonian Museums (Air and Space, Natural History, and American History) as well as a few of the more specific when we needed to use the restroom and were across the Mall from our intended destination.
We also rode on the Metro almost every day, which always included escalators, joy of joys.
We saw the Spirit of St. Louis, Skylab, the Hope Diamond, and lots and lots of other fantastic things.
The Gardens were everyone's favorite. It may have had something to do with the temperatures in the 20's and the eight inches of snow outside that day too.
It was all great fun, but we were certainly glad to get out of the city and move on with our adventure. The next chapter involves a gorgeous vineyard and the Shenandoah Valley. Stay tuned.
