Monday, we slept in (we sure needed it!), then got ready and headed to the Mall! My brothers had three museums on their must-see list: Air & Space, Natural History, and American Art (mainly to see the video game exhibit, which we later found out is no longer there. but more on that later.).

Air & Space was our very first Museum.

It was a lovely day, and I know I wore them out!
The funniest part of the day was in the evening. After being super exhausted, not being able to go another step, etc., my parents perked up(!) when I took them to my local Latin market! They were like kids at Disneyland, and I'm pretty sure this store was the best part of their day. :) One fun thing about the DC area is that there are SO many Salvadorians, which MEANS there is lots of Salvadorian food to be had. My parents went cuh-rAY-zy buying all sorts of delicious Latin foods -- some of which they hadn't seen in YEARS. (In Utah, the Latin population is mostly Mexican, so all the Latin markets are filled with Mexican goods.)

It was a lovely day, and a good way to kick off our DC adventures!
