I have never been to Washington DC before. I was mostly looking forward to visiting the Smithsonian.
We decided to visit the Museum of Natural History and Air & Space.
I am sorry we did not get any pictures of the Hope Diamond but it wasn’t as exciting as I thought it would be.
My favorite thing was walking into the Air & Space Museum and the first thing I saw was the “Spirit of St Louis” plane that Charles Lindbergh flew from New York to Paris. I read about this trip and I was so excited to see the plane.
The SPIRIT OF ST LOUIS
I liked this
The first official DC building we saw
Walking to the Museum of Natural Histroy
I like the details on the buildings
Do you remember this guy in the movie Night in the Museum 2?
Look how huge the moose is
How did they get the animals to pose like this?
Ginger Kitty says this is her kitty cousin
My favorite animal -the cheetah
It's Perry the Platypus
I think my friend Renee's shell is even prettier than this one
He has such tiny hands
Can we bring him home to be our pet? PLEEEASE
This meteorite is all iron inside
No wonder the meteorite we held at Renee's house was so heavy
Close up detail
The colors are super bright
I love the color on this one too
Not only is it pretty, it's huge!
This building is so large that big things (like the elephant) look small
Look closely. Can you spot us in this picture?
Here we are!
"The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination"
I love the sun and the airplane in this photo
This sculpture looks like a real tree
How do you see this optical illusion? Facing in or facing out?
The First Amendment
We were s.t.a.r.v.i.n.g!
My future car
Museum of Air & Space
Going inside a rocket
If this thing takes off, we're toast
Notice there is no front window
Me and Ginger Kitty are tired
Her future job -flight attendant
This is a fancy uniform
Austin in front of the USS Enterprise -his favorite thing he saw
...until he got to touch an actual piece of the moon!
There is no way we could really tell you everything we saw.
And, there is no way we could really see everything that was there.
But I had a good time and I would like to go back someday.
