Today was museum day. We checked out The Smithsonian Institute’s National Air and Space Museum which maintains the largest collection of historic air and spacecraft in the world. It is also a centre for research into the history, science, and technology of aviation and space flight, as well as planetary science and terrestrial geology and geophysics. Heavy stuff.
We then headed to the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History which was opened in 1910, and was among the first Smithsonian buildings constructed exclusively to house the national collections and research facilities. Plenty to see and plenty of people on a Saturday so hard to take photos.
Then for a totally different experience we went back to George Town to Georgetown Cupcake co-founded by sisters Katherine Kallinis Berman and Sophie Kallinis LaMontagne. They have a hit TV series DC Cupcakes and have featured in Cupcake Wars. Their cupcakes are … well …. amazing! The line up of people outside their very small store demonstrates how successful they have become.
