Washington, D.C. Trip

Most of these are on facebook, so sorry fb friends for the double whammy! We had a wonderful time in D.C. My absolute favorite place was the Library of Congress. So much gorgeous architecture and artwork! Got to see Thomas Jefferson’s library – inspirational! Runner up: The Museum of Natural History (one of the Smithsonians). Enjoy!

Madeleine pointed out the mermaids - they have wings, though, so they may be sirens.

Fountain outside the LOC. This picture is so lovely and whimsical - well except for the naked men in the background.

      LOL! I just loved the splashing water in the background and the smile on Mad’s face . . . . then I realized you could see a penis on the guy in the background!!! Fortunately, I don’t think my kids noticed that.
