How much do you think it cost for my wife and I and our two older children to eat lunch at the food court in the Smithsonian's Museum of Natural History? Jennifer, Joey and I each had a soda, a sandwich and fries, and a cookie. Elias had chicken tenders and fries. The grand total....$57.04!!!! That's American Dollars!!!! Fifty seven dollars for a family of four to eat at a food court!
Some of the other highlights from our trip yesterday to the National Smithsonian in D.C.:
At the Air & Space Museum, Elias surprised us all when he went up to a picture of Saturn and said, "Saturn has three rings around it!" We're not quite sure where this knowledge came from, but I suspect Little Einsteins had something to do with it.
One of our favorite things on display at the Air & Space Museum is a box of Red Barron frozen pizza. Elias, however, really enjoyed seeing all the big planes.
At the Museum of Natural History they have a diorama of a Caveman Burial. At this exhibit, we witnessed a woman praying for the soul of the caveman who died several million years ago. She then proceeded to talk to the cavemen and tried to give them all a high-five! We quickly gathered the children up and moved to the next gallery, trying not to make eye contact.
By the end of the day everyone was pooped!
