Washington DC--Day Two

There were so many things in Day Two of the trip, but I couldn't possibly post all pictures! We did a lot of walking on this day; in fact, by the end of the day, Chris was limping from blisters.

We officially started our day in the Holocaust museum and naturally don't have pictures from there. However, I highly recommend visiting there if you ever get a chance. It was absolutely amazing. A truly unforgettable experience.

We then made our way over to the Natural History Museum where Chris got to spend time with his childhood ambitions of being a paleontologist--that is, after spending way too much money on "locally grown organic" lunch in the museum cafe. I was still hungry.

Then we walked to the front of the White House, which actually takes much longer than it should because about half of the roads are blocked off.

Then we walked to all of the monuments and memorials. Lincoln, Vietnam, Korean, WWII, Washington, and Jefferson-- I'll just say this for all: awesome.

The new WWII memorial.

Outside the Lincoln.

Someone else figuring out how to take cool pictures with our camera. No joke. He actually fiddled with settings to make sure the light was captured perfectly. We have no idea what he was talking about.
