We spent another day with Eddie, Kim and the girls laughing and having a great time sightseeing. We went to lunch, then the postal museum and the Natural History Museum.
We took a bus ride to the future.
This dude creeped Dani out so much.
The girls got a kick out of this because it just kept taking photos and we got a lot of funny ones.. After this the Baker’s needed to head for home, but we were so happy with the great 2 days we had together.
After this we headed back to the condo because it was time to pack up and prepare for our two day drive home. We are so grateful to my friend Caitlin for sharing her place with us while she was gone. We had the most wonderful trip to DC because we had a “home” to return to each night instead of a hotel for weeks.
Here is the link to the whole album because we had so many photos: https://www.flickr.com/photos/dwimble/albums/72157663565207827
We were SO EXCITED to start Day 10 by meeting up with Eddie, Kim and the girls who had driven in from West Virginia. It had been since 2013 that we saw them. We started out by eating tasty food and then over to the National Cathedral. We went on a wonderful tour and it wasn’t too crowded which was nice.
I don’t remember seeing this part of the Cathedral the last time we visited. This room of mosaics was amazing.
Mike captured this great photo of Dani.
Cousins having fun! We had a wonderful day.
Our big adventure of the day was to see the “National Museum of the American Indian.” The architecture and decor of this place is absolutely amazing. We had also heard that the cafeteria was one of the best places to eat on the Mall and we were not disappointed.
We returned to the condo to rest, have dinner and of course night swimming!!
At the start of our 2nd week in DC, the girls were in desperate need of a day to relax. So we put on some movies in Caitlin’s condo and let them have some tablet time. Then at dinner time we went out to eat and for a nice walk.
Day 8 – We hopped on the bus and headed for a game store Mike read about online called Labyrinth. It was a super cool place and we got the girls some fun stuff.
Working on tiny legos.
And of course there was more swimming on the rooftop and a photo of the Washington Monument.
