We took a mini vacation to Washington DC over Spencer's Spring Break. Spencer *thoroughly* enjoyed the Natural History museum but was not too impressed with the walking tour. The monuments, Captial building, etc. did not excite him. He was more impressed with the snipers ON TOP of the White House than seeing the White House itself. The metro was fun the first time he rode it, the other times were dull. But the Dinosaur exhibits at the museum made a lasting impression! He "oohed" and "aahed" and "Oh WOWed!" all the way through! He also enjoyed the Mammal exhibits and the IMAX theatre. Oh and did I mention the obscene amount of money spent at the gift shop!!!! That place is more expensive than Disney! It was the perfect mini-vacation-- not too far from home and not too much packed in to our days!
