Weekend Two in Washington DC

On Sunday we hit up the American History Museum (which we all loved) and the Museum of Fine Art (which mostly Mat loved).  We wanted to go to the Holocaust museum, but they get so packed that you have to get tickets ahead of time.  Next time.

The ADA had a large display at the American History Museum:
 This was the original statue for George Washington.  Many people didn't like that he wasn't fully clothed, so they took it down and now it sits in the museum:
 My kids got a kick out of the old Apple computers:

 We had this house when I was a kid:

 Mat loves art, so I apologize for all the pictures:

 This is Daniel in the Lion's Den:

 Look what we found!  Giverny by Monet.  Last summer Finley was actually standing on that bridge in France:
