Yesterday, we decided to spend our Columbus Day learning more about our nation's history by visiting the National Museum of American History. We decided it is our favorite museum here, so far. It was really neat seeing so many pop-culture relics (Harry Potter's robe was there -is that really American history? Either way, it was cool), really neat exhibits on our wars, and the star-spangled banner (yes, the one that inspired our national anthem). That flag was so huge -that really took me by surprise. And of course it all tied in perfectly to the episode of Drunk History we watched last night:)
As we headed to dinner after the museum, it was like fall just appeared out of nowhere. I know it has technically been fall for a few weeks, but it hasn't really hit our area of DC yet, so it was extra fun seeing all of those bright-colored leaves last night. I can't wait until it spreads all over -we have always had to go up to the mountains in AZ to experience fall colors, so this is a fun change. Yay seasons!
