Hot as Hades, aka DC in mid August. And we made it a big walking day (7 miles).

The original plan was based upon a thunderstorm at 4. There was a LOT of modification to our plan.

M got donuts in the morning from Alexandria. Delicious but not so sustaining.

We walked to the Capitol to see it and wandered to the visitors center to see about a tour, which was way easier than I expected it to be.

We got a super cheap and good lunch at Burrito Bros. Then to the Botanic Gardens, no to the monuments.... What, it's a long walk?...

Omg it's hot. Let's go to American history. Since we're passing WW2, let's find Kilroy.

So American History was a bust. Boys were just not interested in the museum. We told them they could get pennies crushed at ONE museum, and they chose Natural history, so we went back there and explored more.
