Washington DC

We just returned from a whirlwind trip to Washington, DC. We only spent two nights and had the kids with us, but we got to do and see so much. What an amazing place. I actually felt good about paying taxes while we were there. It feels good to know that our society does have some reverence for the Arts and over the years our country has accumulated some very impressive collections. We will need to return again soon. Below are some of my favorites. (see comments below for more info on each work)
