I just thought I’d share a few photos from our very quick trip to DC a few weeks ago. I wasn’t in a single photo from the whole trip, but that’s no surprise, I guess. I’m the one that schlepps the camera in my purse, the one that pulls it out where ever we stop, and the one who downloads them to the computer later. Plus, it’s nice to look back at these photos and see exactly what I was seeing during the trip… Directly from my point of view. Maybe I’ll be in some photos next time?
Nothing makes me happier than seeing alternative energy production while taking the back roads.
I think I mentioned this in the post with all the photos from my phone, but Brian and I spent the majority of our time in DC at the Newseum, and we loved it.
I know I posted a photo from my phone of Brian in the exact same spot, but I liked it too much not to take one with my real camera.
The Newseum has newspapers going back to 1570 in great big pullout drawers, and we spent a really long time opening drawers and reading the headlines. It was nerd heaven.
There’s a beautiful 9/11 exhibit that features headlines from all over the world on a huge wall. The wall is next to one of the radio antenna from the top of one of the towers (pictured below). (Did you know that when you’re referring to bugs the plural of antenna is “antennae,” but when you’re referring to electronics the plural is “antennas”..? Weird.)
The Newseum has some amazing interactive exhibits, and we spent some time making our own newspaper layouts. Nothing makes me happier than hands-on things in museums. It’s such a great way to engage the visitors.
It is now a life goal to have a board game based on me/my career. So perfect.
On the left is the lobby of the Discovery Channel building in Silver Spring. We stopped by to look at the skeleton after Jim and Sarah took us to a delicious Greek place for dinner. I think I mentioned that we raced back to Lexington to see Becca & Brad at Thursday Night Live, and our pizza box from that excursion is on the right. Our lives still revolve around food. Whatever.
