Waiting for our tour!
After the Washington Monument, we headed over to the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. This museum was HUGE! We could have spent many more hours exploring it! Mollie and I especially loved the room filled with millions of dollars worth of jewlry!!
This was a gigantic squid that had been caught and is now preserved.
After lunch, we quickly bought ponchos.....aanndd the rain stopped!!
There are only 2 zoos in the country that have panda bears, and lucky for us the DC is one of them!! This is the baby panda, which is only one of a few born in captivity!
Yep, I'm pretty excited to see pandas!
Dc was a great city to visit, and really cheap!! Most all of the museums are free, so if you get the chance, you should definately go to DC! There's so much to do! We had to skip quite a bit, but hopefully we'll go back soon! We had an amazing trip, and we're already planning many more vacations for the 6 of us!

Shane decided we needed to get up at 5am in order to get the most out of our day at the beach. Obviously, it was a little rough on Ben and his Chai Latte!
Ocean City Beach!!
Finally back at the hotel and trying to make dinner plans! It was a fun and exhausting day!
