Today was long and wonderful and I’m exhausted and I really want to watch yesterday’s Secret Life of the American Teenager so this will be fast.
Stop 2: Holocaust Museum. In all my trips to DC I had yet to visit this trademark. It was so powerful. The last place we visited was Daniel’s Story, an exhibit for kids about a child named Daniel during the Holocaust. The end they had a place for kids to write letters to Daniel about what they saw and thought about the exhibit and I saw one that had a little message in Spanish to Daniel about his strength and an apology for what he had to go through. I teared up a lot. What a powerful place, and what things we have to be grateful for!
Stop 3: Pot Belly Sandwich Works. We were starving, and it was delicious. And we saw some Secret Service men!
Stop 4: Ford’s Theater. Newly rennovated and we learned A LOT! The story teller had some really interesting facts to share about Lincoln’s murder… and it was way cool to be in there!
Stop 5: Metro –> Hotel and later Georgetown. That’s a whole other post in itself. I’m in love with Georgetown.
gooood night. Raleigh tomorrow 🙂
