Last month I took a trip.
As you can tell I love history.
History helps me to understand
where people have been before me,
how they choose to solve their problems
and how it has effected our world today.
It also helps me to think that just maybe
they had some of the same problems
we are dealing with today and
they made it through.
The new National Museum of the Native American Indian
Is a wonderful and thoughtful place.
The wampum is a record of events... or a book...
Then I Walked across the Mall to
the American History Museum:
every girl should have a pair
Stumbled into an Excellent Pop Up Book Show!
Stopped @ Julia Child's Kitchen for a chat -
Had dinner with Julia...
"Julia, I can not thank you enough for making
my mother into a wonderful cook," I said.
Then I went and paid my respects...
The Tomb of the Unknown
and left with wise words to carry home...
I went to my favorite look out
the old post office...
It is the tallest building in Washington,
as it was built before the Capitol.
After the Capitol was finished
no building would be taller.
It is the best view and the least crowded.
I wished I could have been there to
witness the bell ringers in action.
And lastly, one more late night stroll...
with the sound of someone else returning
to the White House... after a long day.
