Tourists in our own Town!

Grandpa and Grandma Butler came to town this weekend so, we gladly became tourists in our own hometown. Here are some of the highlights of our weekend.

We started day one at the National Postal Museum, which sounds really boring but is actually pretty interesting and just the right size for kids. My boys enjoyed testing out an 18-Wheeler the best!

Atley has been dying to try out the DCDUCKS! They are these amphibious vehicles from WWII that travel on land and water and have been turned into tourmobiles!

Next, we went to the Library of Congress. Not really sure why after two years in D.C. we had never been there but the art and architecture alone is well-worth the visit.

Of course the highlight of the weekend was the intense BYU victory over Oklahoma. I am not sure if my heart and nerves can handle another football season, but here we go!

Monday we spent in the American Museum and the Museum of Natural History. We took the boys to an IMAX show about Dinosaurs. Isn't Nash cute in his 3D glasses?
