On The Road Again - Day 4

We got up this morning, still feeling the effects of a long day yesterday...but excited to explore Washington, DC!

We decided to start our day big, by heading straight to the White House! It was super cool to stand outside and actually see it in real life.

After walking around the White House area, we needed a break from the hot sun, and headed into the Smithsonian Natural History Museum.  It was great to see the Hope Diamond! It was gorgeous!

We toured around the museum a bit, and had some lunch before going for a big long walk around the National Mall.  Our first stopping point was the Washington Monument.  There was a great view from the monument location down the Mall towards the Lincoln Monument at the other side.

The World War Two monument is really nice and although it's not like the fountain/splash pad in Guelph, I took Logan's shorts and shoes off and let him splash around in it a bit to cool off!

We continued walking down the Mall towards the Lincoln Memorial where we had a great view in the other direction!

We stopped for an icecream break before walking around towards the memorial for the Vietnam War.

At this point we were super hot, and tired, and decided to head back to the hotel for a swim, and a trip to the grocery store to pick up some picnic items for dinner and breakfast!

Tomorrow, we make our way to Virginia Beach! I hope we continue to have gorgeous weather!!!
