Day 1 in DC

We have some happy and tired DC tourists, as we saw a ton of the city and sights today!  We started out with a fun breakfast at the Hard Rock Café, followed by a trip next door to Ford’s Theater.  A visit to the museum and presentation by a NPS Ranger told the story of that fateful April 14, 1865.  We took a great picture stop at the White House, one of everyone’s highlights today.  Kids chose their favorite piece of art at the National Gallery of Art – ask them when they return.  After lunch, we hit the Newseum and Holocaust Memorial Musuem, grabbed some dinner, and did a night tour of the major monuments on the Mall.  All in all, we had a great opening day in DC.  Tomorrow – Mount Vernon, the Capital , and jousting!
