It was hard to leave the Raif's this morning, so we were running a little late as usual. Once we got on the road, we stopped at two Lego Stores (one in Delaware and one in Maryland) for passport stamps. These might be some of the most well travelled Lego passports! While we were at the mall we went ahead and got lunch so we wouldn't have to stop when we got to DC.
Just after passing the "Welcome to Washington DC" sign, we ran into our first big problem of the trip. While driving on ...

Weather: 1-3 degrees felt hot initially but I foolishly wore less clothes ...
... friend of theirs that we've now had the pleasure to meet. After brunch Alexis helped us buy train tickets, (actually she paid for the tickets) and told us which station to go to for the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum.
We ended up spending the whole afternoon at the museum. It is a fantastic museum, with great exhibits from early flight and astronomy to space missions. We also tried our hand at a fighter plane ...
