Wordful Wednesday






We took little guy to see the National Tree this past weekend. First, we paid a visit to the American History museum, which has been closed for the past three years for renovations. It is where you will find the Star Bangled Banner, Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz's glass slippers, light bulbs, Archie Bunker's chair, Seinfeld's "Pirate" shirt (you may remember that episode of you are a Seinfeld fan), and basically memorabilia from America. There are also planes, trains and automobiles, so of course my son would want to see the trains :).

After the museum we took him to the Sculputure Garden's Ice Skating Rink. It's a rather small outside rink but it is very cute and charming. You can see my son up against the railing watching the skaters. He was quite enchanted as he has never seen ice skating before.

Of course we were there for several hours before sunset visiting the museum and the ice rink (having lunch too, of course :)). We wanted to wait until evening so we could see the tree all lit up. We got to the tree about 5pm and wouldn't you know it, little guy was fast asleep and missed the whole tree experience. It was a very nice day, temps were in the 50's so it was a very pleasant experience. Too bad little guy missed the tree......I have also included a photo of The White House. Pardon the blurry picture but it was tough taking at night without a tripod :), and all the glare from the surrounding lighting.

This looks like a truly amazing trip. I LOVE Washington DC and LOVE that you can do so many things without being nickled and dimed to death. I didn't even know my fav Smithsonian was closed. Guess I haven't been there in more than 3 years! :) Happy Holidays!

I lived in DC years ago when my husband worked for President Reagan. It's so beautiful there and so much to see. It's been over 20 years since I've been there. :(

I love DC! We tried to go to the Museum of American History last months but it was still closed. I've never been to see the National Tree. Looks like a fun day!
