Washington DC, Day Two

Our second day in DC, we started at the Archives! What a treat to see the original Declaration of Independence and Constitution among other things. They have really changed the museum part of this since I had been years ago. It was also well worth the few dollars to reserve a timed entry rather than waiting in a long line.

Then it was on to Ford's Theatre - Emily is especially interested in President Lincoln and this was her request. We enjoyed a free talk and were able to see the Presidential Box.

After lunch we spent the afternoon at the Air & Space Museum! It was crowded, but we still enjoyed our visit! And, it was nice to see the Capitol on the way!

We finished off the day at the pool with our hospitable friends!
