We started the day seeing the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The girls had learned about them at school and thought it was cool to actually see them. After a not so great museum lunch yesterday we decided to go to Subway for lunch. As we were walking back toward Pennsylvania Avenue we saw all of these police motorcycles. They cleared the roads and the presidential motorcade came through. Pretty cool, but very loud.
Don had it with the three females he was with not wanting to go to the Air and Space Museum, so he went while the ladies went to the American History Museum. He had the good camera with him, so no pictures of the girls (the iPhone really takes lousy pictures without a lot of light). Bella and Caden were very interested in the First Ladies Dresses and the 5 story doll house.
At the beginning of the trip, each girl got $40. They were told they could use the money to buy souvenirs and not to ask us to buy them anything. It was very interesting watching them for three days decide how to spend the money. They learned very quickly how expensive things were and several times they started to buy something that was way overpriced and decided it was not worth the money. In the end they bought some very nice souvenirs and hopefully began to learn something about managing money.
