Spring Break

We had a whirlwind trip to DC for Spring Break. The weather cooperated nicely, with temperatures in the upper 50s and lower 60s and partly sunny. We drove out Monday, spent Tuesday and Wednesday exploring various museums and sights around the Mall, and then returned home Thursday. Here are a few highlights.
