On our way to DC again. We stayed in Virginia with our dear friend Kelly so we had to drive about 45 minutes or drive 20 and take the train which is what we did. Can't park anywhere for more than 2 hours there.

2 August 2016

More MLK memorial and also my favorite presidents memorial President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Biggest memorial of a pres. We saw. It just kept going.
Last pics of the Natural History museum. Mummy exhibit, Opals always reminds me of Grandma Ducky. Next was the coolest thing. Which if I wanted to be buried (which I don't) I'd want to be buried in one of the badass plane coffins or another shape similar. We left the museum to walk and see the presidents monument and memorials. Did you know that the only dead presidents monument in DC is the Washington monument. All others are memorials. #themoreyouknow. Anyways that little guy we're about to crush is the Jefferson memorial. That was just a little too far so we decided that it needed to be crushed. And one of my dad's heroes Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial
Animal bones. Me standing next a giant sea turtle. Bat bones and dinosaurs. Call me morbid, but I've always wanted to articulate a skeleton.
More bats!!! The hope diamond is in there a cool looking mask and the evolution of elephants too.
More Natural History museum. Animal exhibit. Man I love bats.
More of the Natural History museum
