Our giant room. We also had a small kitchen area.
We started the morning at the zoo! We met up with my good friend HD and her boys there. They had a flight home that afternoon, but we did get to spend a little time with them again!
I figure we walked close to six miles this day. After getting back to our Metro stop, we went to Pizzeria Paradiso in Dupont Circle, voted the best pizza in DC, to grab a slice. Not bad! I think we all fell asleep pretty quickly this night.
We went to the Reagan Commerce Building's food court for lunch. Crazy is an understatement. Afterward, we headed across the National Mall to get to the Smithsonian Castle.
We saw some other folks taking funny photos like this, so EJ and I just had to try it:
There's a beautiful old carousel in front of the Smithsonian Castle. Sophie had to ride the shiny blue dragon.
The next stop was the Air and Space Museum, but on the way, EJ went inside the Hirschorn's building to check out the fountain.
At the Air and Space Museum, we saw the Wright Brothers plane...
And Amelia Earhart's plane...
and the cockpit of a jetliner:
