Sunday night I took the big girls to the airport. They both went to TX . Jenna is camping with Emma and the Venturing Crew and then visiting friends and going to the New Years Eve Dance. Sierra is visiting lots of friends. It's always weird to have them gone.
So, Monday morning we decided to try out the metro and go to DC. We drove down to the station and talked to a very nice worker who showed us how to do it and then we boarded. The kids thought it was great fun to be in an underground tunnel on a train. Beloved and I thought it was way less stressful than driving in DC and parking in DC.
We went to the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History.
Then we went and walked the mall looking at monuments in the freezing weather.
The kids found this little squirrel that was so friendly. They fed him nuts and raisins and he ate right out of their hand.
