Adventures in DC – Day 2!

Our second full day of adventures in DC was slightly more subdued, only because our feet were truly beginning to hurt. After breakfast in the hotel, we headed out to the Smithsonian again. The Smithsonian is free to enter, and is one of the best things to do in DC. Here's some quick facts on…
