Today was a wonderful day! I went to Washington DC and got to see the National History Museum and the National Gallery of Art. I was extremely impressed with the exquisite, intricately crafted wooden furniture from the 1700’s. I had fun walking through the sculpture garden and was particularly intrigued by a beautiful silver tree which I took a picture of against an ominous sky. We drove past each country’s embassy and played a game to see who could recognize the most flags. A few magnolia trees were in bloom, but the cherry trees by the Jefferson Memorial only have buds on them.
