Playing Tourist!

Saturday was a beautiful day, so we decided to take advantage of the city and play tourist for the day. And, sadly, this was the first time we had been into the city since we moved here. We hope to start taking advantage of all that DC has to offer. This trip to the city was devoted to the Air and Space Museum. With Jackson's love of al lthings rockets and space, we thought it would be a hit. We had planned to take the metro to the Smithsonian, and then walk to the museum. But the DC area Transit Authority had other plans for our little trip. The Orange Line Metro was having some track work done all weekend long. So we had to get off a few stops early and take a shuttle bus to another stop and walk about 1/2 mile to the museum. No worries. Jackson enjoyed every bit of it. The museum was great and Jackson really enjoyed seeing all the rockets and planes. First successful trip to DC accomplished!! Where to next? Maybe now I will have the courage to venture into the city on my own with Jackson...

Ready to get on the metro!

Heading up to the train!
