Last days of DC

We're going to miss museum hopping and enjoying all of the 'culture' - whatever that is. So we went downtown to enjoy and remember for Memorial Day weekend. 

Building and construction were all around - at the building museum with their new additions.  A great sand area with a digger!

High tech wall that builds the shapes people make.

And a blue room of giant cogs, wheels, nuts, and bolts.

And a room of the same things but smaller.

Just outside was a memorial for fallen police officers. I loved the flowers and tried to read some of the names.

But the craziest and loudest part was hours of Rolling Thunder rollin' past the Capitol building.

 There were thousands and thousands of motorcycles.  They never seemed to stop.

 Even DC itself is under construction.  I hope that when we come back again I'll still remember all the fun!

What a send off -- blue rooms, sand pits, Roaring Thunder. I'm sure that when you go back for a visit, you will find even more things are new and exiting. So, enjoy all the things to do while you are still there and remember everything for all the wonderment and joy it brought all of you...

Hopefully, you'll get a chance to see all your favorite places in DC again. Good luck finding your new house and neighborhood. You should be able to find fun places to go in NE too.
