Washington DC- Day 2

Yesterday was AWESOME!!!!!! Here's what we did:

First we rode the Metro, it was sooooooo cool! I liked it when it wasn't to busy, as a dancer, I may have to live in a big city, and public transportation is a good option for that.

Then we got to the National Archives, it really wasn't that exciting, but I did enjoy seeing the The Declaration of Independance, The Bill of Rights, and The Constitution. When we got there, my little brother said "Are we gonna go see the Constitution of Independance?" (LOL)

For the most part, the documents were pretty faded, but it was really cool, because on The Constitution, you could see where it said "We the People" REALLY well. It was so amazing that I got to see the documents that run our Country!

They also had a really cool exhibit called "What's Cooking, Uncle Sam?" It was about the way the goverment helps to decide what we eat. They showed food pyramids from a long time ago. Can you believe that there was actually a time when fruits and veggies were on the bottom of the pyramid? According  to a 1926 shopping list, for my family, we would by 70 lbs. of fruits and vegetable EVERY WEEK?

Then my mom, older brother, and I went to the National Gallery! It WAS AWESOME! We thought it was so good that we didn't want to leave early to look at the Museum of Natural History. So yeah, unfortunately, I didn't get to go, BUT... we did see

THIS SCULPTURE! It was the real thing to! Which was really awesome, because in the original sculpture they tied the real little girl who posed for this sculpture's hair ribbon in the sculptures hair!

There were lots of other dancer sculptures to! I'll try to post the pictures when I get back.

We also went on a night tour to all the memorials! I liked the World War II memorial, because it's soooo pretty at night! It was kind of a trade off though, because since it was so dark, you couldn't really see the Vietnam Memorial. The Abraham Lincoln Memorial was AWESOME! The statue was really cool!
