My Tourist Experience

Here a couple of pics in random order from today.
in front of the White House

in front of the castle

yesterday with Congressman Matheson

Ya. For all you asked me to take a picture if I saw President Obama---this is the best I got!!!
OK, for a quick run down of what I did today I will give you the list:
Smithsonian Air and Space Museum--where we saw the Apollo!
Hirshorn Museum--where we saw a very huge sculpture of a man
Smithsonian Castle
Edin Gardens
Carrousel at The Mall
Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial
Abraham Lincoln Memorial--that was unbelievable!!!!
Washington Memorial reflecting in the Reflection PUDDLES!!
Veterans Memorial--from the bus
Smithsonian American History Museum--we didn't even get to see all of it--but it was still awesome!!!
Ford's Theatre and Peterson House--we weren't able to into the Theatre when we first got there because it was closed until 4pm so we went over the Peteron House while we waited
Madame Tusaud's (actually just the entrance because I didn't have the money to go in--so I got pictures with the wax figures what were there in the front)
The International Spy Museum (gift shop) we didn't want to pay the fee :}
The White House -- where I got repremanded by the secret service (with a strong lisp, mind you) for stepping onto the road...
And then back to our hotel to snack, veg, hot tub and watch American Idol!
Just a flash back of our trip to the International Art Gallery. When I went to get my picture taken by the Daniel and the Lions Den, the security guard yelled at me to get away because it is "real...old art..." Gee, now I am an official hick from my town!!! Don't I make you proud? I mean who would have thought that they would have real and old artwork in an International Art Gallery!!!!!
