National Treasures

Few things delight my obsesssive-complusive nature more than planning a trip. In June, we trekked to Washington, D.C. and Colonial Williamsburg. By all means, go and see the seat of our nation's government and take your kids along, but save yourself hours of Google time by reading our tips here. Details from the Williamsburg trip are coming soon.

Here are a few more highlights:

The kids and Abraham Lincoln...

A small token of thanks to what is truly The Greatest Generation--The World War II Memorial is stunning and incredibly appropriate in its detail. I only wonder why it took so long to make this happen.

Flying a plane (sort of) at the National Air and Space Museum -- This place is more fun than the law should allow. I could have spent days there.

Until the National Museum of American History reopens in 2008, the Air and Space Museum is home to Americana incarnate. In this case alone you can find Archie Bunker's chair, Seinfeld's puffy shirt and (ah...) Mister Rogers' sweater. I was as giddy as a school girl.

Honestly, this is not a knock against the Museum of Natural History, but John could not resist taking a picture of this sign. We are still processing its directive.
