Taking on DC (part 2)

 Catching a playoff game down by the harbor
 Chilly night... but we really got lucky with the
weather during our stay
 Checking out "The Awakening" down on the beach

 Toes in the sand

 It made for a fun playground
 Waiting for our table for dinner
 Daddy came straight from his conference
 In pj's and checking out the nightly water show... again!

  We made it to the Children's Museum...
This one you do have to pay.
 Nik the fire fighter
 Natasha's turn

 She is pretty cute fire fighter

 Craft time
 Another morning down by the beach
 Riding on the Capital Wheel
Even though we were not in the heart of Washington DC, National Harbor had a lot to offer.  For starters, our hotel was awesome and enormous.  The nightly water show was a big hit for the kids and being able to walk everywhere worked for me.  We even went swimming one afternoon in the indoor pool.  There were some great restaurants in the harbor as well.  The kids and I had fun exploring the beach and shopping at the Peep store... yes, a store selling Peeps year round.  And of course, we did make a visit to the Children's Museum.  It is very similar to what we have here (Pretend City).  But, the kids enjoyed it and with a little begging from Natasha we went back for a little bit more fun after lunch.  On our last night we rode the Capital Wheel.  It was fun to see the Harbor al lit up at night, but you really couldn't see any of the monuments lit up.  Overall, we had a fantastic time and Natasha still asks when we will be going back to Washington DC.
