More from our vacation
Natural History Museum
The family pictured with the remains of the giant sloth. The kids LOVED it.
I am always surprised with what they are interested in and impressed by. Never the same as I am.
They are rebuilding the reflecting pool. A little disappointed that the kids didn't get to see it but I am sure it was time to fix it-according to the signs.
I don't remember all the city buildings being there when I was there before but maybe they were...
I never noticed much about Lincoln until my daughter did a report on him in 5th grade. She still says he is one of her favorite people.
I was in awe of the presence of his hat.
(Am. History Museum)
Here is Mary Todd Lincoln's dress. Look how tiny she was.
The dresses of the first ladies was by far my favorite display in the museums.
World War II memorial
It was beautiful and incredibly moving.
