Wright Brother's Airplane
The Spirit of St. Louis
One of Amelia Erhart's planes.
The boys had a ball doing a flight simulator, where they had the plane flying upside down. It was so fun watching them talk about the maneuvers and listening to them giggle about how they reacted, even Todd looked at me with a smile and nodded towards the boys. He too was happy to see them enjoy their selves as much as they did. Especially after all the bickering they did when we had to rest every now and then on benches because let's face it we are not as young as they are nor in shape like they are.
Noah wanted to go to the National Gallery of Art, however the majority wanted to walk down the National Capital, I promised him we would stop on our way back. He sulked a little but understood. Off we went, while we were walking down the National Mall we noticed people laying out quilts and heard names being called out. Stitch in Time was going on in Washington DC.
Prior to the National Capital there is a Ulysses S. Grant Memorial.
After we sat and enjoyed the breeze and beauty of the National Capital we headed back to see the Smithsonian National Gallery of Art. Noah was not interested going into the building, he basically just wanted to see the art work outside the building.
