We flew to Washington DC to celebrate Taylor's brother's promotion to Col. in the Air Force. There was a lovely ceremony and reception at the National War College, a very beautiful building. I hope that I can get a few photos from David, because I failed to take pictures on the day of those festivities.
On our first day in DC, we went to the Smithsonian's Natural History Museum and the Air and Space Museum. Both were quite spectacular. On Friday, we took a trolley tour around town and then had a little family photo shoot with a photographer whom I found prior to the trip. The cherry blossoms had fallen off all the trees around the Tidal Basin. The Supreme Court had a few trees still in full bloom, so we went there for pictures. We should see the pics in a few weeks.
This is the main lobby of the Natural History Museum. Brady was a little overwhelmed, but loved the big dinosaur skeletons and all the animals.
The "Spirit of St. Louis", flown by Charles Lindberg across the Atlantic in the 1920's.
The red buds were almost as pretty as the cherry trees in bloom.
