Air and Space Museum Day! Also, National Mall (some of it).

Lots of bucket list items today.

The Air and Space Museum was absolutely the most crowded thing we've done yet. But. So. Cool.

I couldn't resist, when Emma approached this item, leaning over and whispering in her ear, 'Hey, who turned off the lights?'.

The girls, having recently seen Star Trek: The Voyage Home, made many references to 'nuclear wessels'. I didn't have the heart to point out that these were nuclear missiles, not wessels.

More computing power in the phone that took the picture, than in the lander. Everyone knows that, Mom.

Who knew?

Amelia Earhart's Lockheed Vega. I was NOT crying. The guy handing out maps asked me what I thought happened to her. I'm not sure it matters, honestly. Because everyone loves a mystery, and the mystery lets her inspire more people than she might if we ever got an actual answer. Girls need heroes.

The atmosphere in this place was incredible. Intense. So much wonder. Really, really great.

Then we went out to visit the National Mall. Didn't get far, and even as much as we saw was probably pushing too much into one day. But none of us really wanted to try driving downtown on a workday, so it was now or never.

The day ended, as has every day so far, with a visit to the swimming pool. The rainbow was a bonus.

Next post (maybe even tonight): Fan type pictures from today.
