D.C. Tourist =)

I promised I would blog a lot once I was on summer vacation! =) Here's another post that I should've written back in late May when we went Downtown to the Nation.al Mall/Smithson.ian. We took a Metro to the Smithson.ian stop which is significant b/c it's at that Metro stop that Steven and I first met... on a blind date, almost 11 years ago (awww)!

We took Adam to the Nation.al History Museum (his first museum visit!) and he really enjoyed it. We went to the butterfly exhibit, dinosaur exhibit (of course) and the sea life exhibit. Adam also saw his 1st IM.AX film, in 3D, no less. It was about the ocean and he was mesmerized. Here are some pics from our adventure in Downtown DC (only about a 30 minute Met.ro ride away):

Adam was on the Metro once before, 2 years ago. As you can see, he really enjoyed it now!

See the Washingt.on Mon.ument in the background?

In awe of all the butterflies

Stunning

Adam, trying to catch a butterfly (as you can see, he followed the directions NOT to touch a butterfly to the tee, haha). He was really gentle, at least!

Love this photo; too bad it came out all funky

1st IM.AX -- 3D! Glasses were a *bit* too big but if he sat absolutely still, they stayed on =)

dinosaur bones... or maybe a big lobster???

Under the Sea...

Besides running around the Nation.al Mall, jumping in puddles like a little madman afterwards, he was a wonderful little tourist. =)
