"That they (the older women) admonish the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed." Titus 2:4-5

Our Trip to D.C. (Part 3)

If you missed them, you can read part 1 and part 2 of our trip.

Relaxing after a hard day with some ice cream!

In front of the Supreme Court building

The National Botanical Garden. It was very beautiful and I highly recommend it!

Ok, this requires explaination. Our almost 2 year old has been throwing tantrums lately. Because I made her hold my hand, she layed down on the ground (sidewalk by a road) and screamed. At the time, it was so funny to me I was laughing and took a picture. It had been a long day and even longer week and she had reached her limit I guess. Bad parenting, I know, but I let it slide that time. :D

Smithsonian Air and Space Museum

Our last full day in the city was spent with some family, the Botanical Garden and the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum (both of which are free!). I think that Air and Space is one of their best and most popular museums. It's an excellent place to go with children, but perhaps not very young children. Older children will really appreciate all the great exhibits and activities gear for their age group.

Our last day of the trip, we took the Metrorail into the city to visit the Smithsonian National Zoo. It was free and huge. We were too cheap to buy a $2 map and got lost and turned around a few times! We definitely didn't see everything and will have to go back sometime. :)

On Monday I'll post my tips for traveling with small children! Are you planning any trips or vacations this summer? Where are you going?
