Doing the DC

The bonus of living in the Metropolitan DC area is that you ALWAYS have something to do when people come to visit.

DadGuy's parents are here with us right now, and we've spent the last two days walking up and down the National Mall. The shortlings have been surprisingly well behaved. We got tickets for the double decker tour buses because it's the best way to see everything in a short period of time. Seriously. They have awesome routes that have no less than 50 stops. It's the best ever. The only drawback is that your children's will want to sit up top the WHOLE TIME, even if it's cold and windy and drizzly. (Which wouldn't be a problem if their mother had dressed them in warm coats and gloves and scarves instead of hoodies... Bygones)

Now I'm trying to think of what else to do. What would YOU do if you had another day in Washington DC? What is on your must-see list? And we already saw Mr. Abraham so keep that suggestion to yourself.
