Unfortunately we're not going to make it to as many as I would like, but we're here for such a short time, that I should forgive myself.
So far we've made it to the National Air and Space Museum and the International Spy Museum.
The Spy Museum was today, it was the children, and my in-laws. My poor husband had to work.
All of the children enjoyed themselves very much.

We went downtown and saw the memorials on Sunday. It was so nice to see all of them. Some I'd been to, but some I had not, and one I didn't even know existed. And to show the kids, this part of one of my favorite cities in the world, was a joy to me.

|The Korean War Memorial. Notice the reflections|
of the stone soldiers in the wall.
|The World War I Memorial. This, I had |
never seen before.
|World War II Memorial. This was a busy place.|
|The Pacific and Atlantic towers were mini-memorials |
for the battles that took place in those areas.
|Washington Monument. It's so tall, you |
can't see the top when you're next to it.
|I found this while we were walking. |
What a nice gesture.
|The Vietnam War Memorial. I unfortunately forget to |
snap a photo until we were far from it.
The thousands of names on the wall are so sad.
