i have a ridiculous amount of pictures from our trip to my parents' house. so i'll try to keep the commentary to a minimum! the first major thing we did with the kids was to take the metro down to the smithsonian. we went to the national museum of natural history... you know. the one with the big elephant in the middle and dinosaurs, etc. lula loved riding the metro. she stood up holding onto a pole the whole time!
we had a lovely day at the museum and barely saw half of it. they had an awesome butterfly house that lula was just thrilled with. they also LOVED the bug area that had live bugs. they even got to hold some. lula is so brave. little phases her.
the kids also got to see their first 3D movie and their first imax movie. it was called flying monsters and was about how flying dinosaurs evolved over the years. diesel actually kept his glasses on the whole time and literally sat like a statue. i thought he'd fallen asleep a couple of times! lula was a little less interested. she's more of a doer than a watcher... just like her dad!
the national museum of natural history was a great place to spend the day with the kids in DC. it was great even for two year olds. the kids had a great time, and i'd definitely take them back!
