About two weeks ago, I was lucky enough to accompany Cameron's 5th grade class on an overnight field trip to Washington, DC. It was a whirl wind trip, to say the least, but so much fun for the kids!
Upon arrival we (after leaving school on a "motor coach" at 6am!!!!!!!), we headed straight for the Smithsonian. Although I have been to DC twice, I do not remember doing the particular parts of the Smithsonian that we did. And, this was Cameron's very first trip to DC ever! So much fun to watch things through the eyes of curious 5th graders!
Cameron and I were a little disappointed to find out we could not see the ruby red slippers from the Wizard. They were out of the museum until next month. (The Wizard of Oz is a favorite of ours!)
But, we did get to see the scarecrow's shoes and hat!
Obviously, the architecture in Washington DC is breathtaking and what makes the city what it is. There are not many other cities you can name immediately simply by looking at the skyline!
We were able to see parts of the Smithsonian, the Vietnam memorial, Korean War Memorial, WWII Memorial, Jefferson memorial, Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument, a tour of the Capitol, photo op outside the White House, and Arlington National all in less than 48 hours!
