Washington D.C. with Hayes

We spent all day in Washington DC and had a blast! I was so excited to introduce Hayes to this amazing city. It was his first trip. We made sure to give him the small digital camera to take his own pictures. He had a really good time with it.

We started our day at the Lincoln Memorial; Hayes did a president report on Lincoln this year in school and was thrilled to get to see this in person. It was so cool to watch him take it all in.

We stopped by the Korean War Memorial on our way to the Smithsonian.

And we didn't go up in the Washington monument, but we got to walk all around it. It was hot and Hayes and I were needing to get inside to some air conditioned museums!

At the Museum of Natural History, we saw a really cool bug exhibit. Hayes even got to hold a Madagascar Hissing Cockroach! Talk about thrilling....

And of course we had to see the dinos. Daddy was able to join us by this time and we loved having him with us for the rest of the day.

Then it was over to the Air & Space Museum to do a Simulator Ride with Daddy,

and see a cool show in the Planetarium.

They thought we wouldn't be able to get to all of it, but we did! We had a great day!

I'd love to be able to see DC through Hayes's eyes... think you'll share any of the pictures he took?

Hope you're enjoying your summer!
