Springtime in the Nation's Capital

With a sunny Saturday and temperatures in the 70's today, we decided to venture into DC to check out the National Museum of Natural History.

On the way, we walked through the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden.

This looked like it would have been fun for Jillian to climb. Unfortunately, climbing on the sculptures was not permitted.

John liked this one best. One day, I think he aspires to have the time to make one himself. Though we may need a bigger yard...

We didn't get to see as much of the museum as I would have liked, with "meltdown Minnie" in tow, but I really enjoyed the "Written in Bone" exhibit. I had no idea it was even there, but would love to go back and check it out again more thoroughly.

Jillian did pretty good considering it was way past both nap time and lunchtime, but she just couldn't take it anymore. She settled down after helping me eat a footlong hotdog for lunch, but you can still tell she was sleepy. She slept the whole way home!
