Washington, D.C. with Kids - Day 3


On Day 3 the girls, Cade and I bundled up and went to the National Geographic Museum. We have a pass to a science museum that is suppose to get us in to the NGM free, but it was old news! No free admittance - BUT they let us in free anyways since it wasn't our misunderstanding.

The National Geographic Museum is AWESOME! The main exhibits are photographs that have graced the pages of the National Geographic Magazine. There are many genre of photographs from photographers of all ages.

There is also an Indiana Jones exhibit at the National Geographic Museum that is pretty extensive. It is a history lesson along with how they made the movies.



Washington, D.C. has so many beautiful buildings with wonderful architecture! You can walk around just looking at buildings and have a great time. 


We met up with the boys and ate some delicious BBQ for lunch. Then we headed to Ford's Theater, the place where President Lincoln was shot.


 There is a very interesting and educational exhibit in addition to the actual theater - which is still in use, but NO you can't sit in Lincoln's seat. You can also tour the house across the street where Lincoln was taken after being shot and later died.


And of course, there's a gift shop. Here is a tower of books all written about Lincoln. I didn't catch the number of books, but it had to be in the thousands!


By now it was late evening and we headed to the Kennedy Center to listen to a free Bluegrass concert. Every Wednesday the Kennedy Center offers a free concert in the early evening. I highly recommend going up to the top floor of the Kennedy Center and see the city view from there. Our cousin met us here and gave us this tip.
We were starving and headed to Georgetown for some dinner. We ended up at Pizzeria Paradiso - one word - DELICIOUS! They offered gluten free and dairy free options, which made a few in our party very happy.
Then we enjoyed window shopping in Georgetown on our way back to the hotel.
That's the end of Day 3 in Washington, D.C. Join me next week for a continuation of our Washington, D.C. trip.
