Tuesday - A great start for the young historical travelers!

Want a lot of Tuesday pictures?  Check them out here!

We packed a ton of historical love into our 14 hours today, all led by the intrepid bus driving tandem of Ty and Joe.  A hearty breakfast at Harriet's helped us fuel up for a visit to Ford's Theater and a drop in at the Library of Congress - two incredible buildings!  We spent some time in the beautiful DC sunshine with BOTH of our Wisconsin Senators.  How about that?!?!

We followed up with a great tour of the Capitol, checking out the Rotunda and Statuary Hall.  From there, a late lunch at Reagan International Trade Center set us up for the rest of the day.  We visited the Washington Monument and saw the city from the highest point (500 feet high!), and then toured the MLK, FDR, and Jefferson Memorials.  It all brought that boring history class to life!!  

The night ended with a ball game (well, most of a ball game) at Nationals Park.  All in all, it was pretty much flawless for Day 2, and the kids are doing great.  Another big day tomorrow!
