Natural History Museum and History

 Next we went on a tour of the Capital building. It is in the middle of a renovation so there was a lot of scaffolding in the way. We still got to see a big part of the rotunda and I think the kids mostly enjoyed the tour.

 We went to the National Archives and saw a Gutenberg Bible- that was on my bucket list.
 We went to the National Archives and saw the Declaration of Independence, THe Magna Carta, The Constitution and The Bill of Rights- it was an epic moment.
 Next we saw the girls' very favorite part of the trip. The Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. They were in heaven.
 She finally got to see a real life mummy. She has always always wanted to see one outside of a sarcophagus.
 THe girls loved the rock, minerals and gems exhibit but they were not impressed by the Hope Diamond.
 We got tickets to go inside of the butterfly pavillion and Asia never wanted to leave. She loves insects of all kinds but especially butterflies. They were flying around and landing all over her and she was absolutely in heaven.
 Story time.
