Washington DC - Day Two

Today we parked at Union Station and showed the family the Japanese Internment Memorial on our way to the Air and Space Museum. As the day came to a close we walked back via the Capitol steps (as close as you can get without the official tour).

US Botanic Garden Again

We had family up for Christmas so we took them downtown to see the sites. We took them to see the wonderful Christmas display at the Botanic Garden on our first day out. It was a big hit.

This is a Star Cactus from the endangered plants display.

US Botanic Garden

Today we stumbled upon the Botanic Garden's Christmas exhibit. There was a large model train set up outside, and inside were models of famous DC buildings made entirely out of natural items like bark, acorns, corn husks, and pine cones. It was lots of fun. :)

We thought of Biff :)
