It was another fantastic (and tiring) day for the Wildcat tourists in Washington D.C. today as we hit more of the great sights of the capitol city. We began with a nice morning stroll to the Air Force Memorial and Pentagon 9/11 Memorial, a bonus for staying out in the Pentagon area.
The kids loved our trek to the Udvar Hazy Air and Space Museum, including another special tour from Mr. Mike Nelson.
Our visit to the Holocaust Memorial Museum was very powerful, and the students did a great job experiencing the museum due to their background from Mrs. Reimer in 7th grade. The museum helps answer some tough questions about this darkest part of human history ... and opens up the door for many more. We also stopped at the National Archives to see the Charters of Freedom - can't miss those when you go to DC.
After a delicious dinner at Pizzeria Uno, we took the traditional picture at the White House. Who knew that it was super crowded in the early evening?
Our night ended with a tour of the major memorials on the National Mall. We were joined by many USM alumni who were reliving their DC trip from years ago - an awesome addition to our tour!
