Day 460 | The Mall

Every time we venture down to The Mall for a morning outing it turns into the best decision ever. Today was no exception. 

It turns out the cure to overcoming a rocky start to the morning is holding various insects, watching a turantula eat her weekly meal, learning about animal skeletons, and running up and down a well-placed ramp at the National History Museum. Oh, and a lovely picnic in a shady spot overlooking the Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial to wrap up the outing. 

I need to get up the motivation to trek down there more often...even if it is the height of tourist season.
