Washington, D.C.

Yesterday Megan and I went down to DC for the day. We went to the Air & Space Museum and the Museum of Natural History. It was really fun to see so much interesting stuff in one day. Here are some of our favorites.

This is the command module from Apollo 11. Michael Collins got to
hang in here orbiting the moon, while Lance Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the moon.

There was a huge exhibit of animal skeletons. Here is Megan next to her 2nd love, a leatherback sea turtle.

Coolest sculpture ever. It was titled something like "Thinker on a Rock". I can't imagine a better use of my tax dollars.

In the Museum of Natural History there was a huge exhibit on minerals and gems. They had some finished diamonds that were about a million carats, but I thought the colorful minerals were way better.
