DC Day 1 - Air and Space Museum, Capital, Congressman

We took the metro (a first for the kids) into Washington DC and saw the Smithsonian. Did you know the "Smithsonian" is actually 19 different museums? We could have spent all day (and did spend most of one) at the National Air and Space Museum. A highlight after Kitty Hawk was certainly seeing the Wright Brothers' original plane! We also saw Amelia Earhart's plane, lots of items taken to the moon and on shuttles, and just so much more. It's huge and we only scratched the surface.
We also walked around the Capital and are looking forward to our tour soon. It's an impressive building!
We happened upon Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan speaking to students on a field trip.
We'll need more than a few days to cover DC!
