DC Day Two.

Today was another jam packed, fun filled, learning experience. We started out our day in the White House, which is not something many tourists can say. We were lucky enough to have had the opportunity to walk through rooms that presidents, kings, and dignitaries have been in. It was such a great time!

After our tour at the White House, we made our way to Ford's Theater. This was the theater where President Abraham Lincoln was shot. At the theater we watched a play all about the night he was killed. It was very informative and neat to hear the perspective of those who were there the night it happened. After the show we headed across the street to The Peterson House, which was the house were Lincoln was taken afterwards and where he would die the following morning.

Next, we loaded the bus again and traveled to the National Mall where we were dropped off at The Air and Space Museum for lunch and touring. We had several hours to tour the Simithsonian Museums. We did see a little rain, but nothing slowed us down.

After the museum trip, we traveled to the Pentagon City Mall for fine dining in the food court and some shopping.

We finally ended our evening with a night tour of the Vietnam Memorial, The Lincoln Memorial, The Korean War Memorial, and the WWII Memorial. It was a great night and we really enjoyed seeing the mall at night!

Well, as you can see it has been a great day!! It is late, and I apologize for the pictures being out of order or any mistakes that have been made on this post but I am one tired teacher. I will edit, add captions, and more details once we get back. For now I'm just trying to keep you all up to date! So, for now goodnight from DC- tomorrow is another exciting one! Come back and see what we get into next.
