Day in the City

Wow, this summer has flown right by. I am sad to say that we are down to only two more weeks of vacation before the kids go back to school. For now I am trying to squeeze in as much family fun as we can. Matt had a day off work this week, so we decided to spend a day in DC. We were able to get passes to go to the top of the Washington Monument, which the kids were very excited about. The earthquake that closed the monument happened the week we moved to the area, almost three years ago. It only recently reopened, so this was our first chance. We also visited the Lincoln Memorial, which was Little Matt's request, and the Museum of Natural History, which Beth asked for. The tame squirrels on the National Mall were a big hit with the younger two girls. They looked quite pudgy...I think the tourist area must make for easy squirrel living.
