After brunch, it was high five time.
In December, the boys were obsessed with a book called Subway Ride that has illustrations of subway systems all around the world. Since we couldn't take them to Cairo anytime soon, we promised them we'd take them on the Washington Metro. We also introduced to them some songs about some of the cities in the book. So they are really into The Clash's London Calling and London's Burning and The Magnetic Fields - Washington DC. In fact, it is impossible to get Sam to mention Washington without stating it the way he hears it in the song complete with the baby between Washington and DC.
We took the boys on their first trip to the Air and Space Museum. It was just as crowded as I remembered it back in the day.
Otis was sad that the space shuttle was at the VA branch and has been imploring me to take him to VA on a regular basis for the past number of weeks. I don't know what they were pointing at here but it definitely wasn't a space shuttle.
Right next door to the Air and Space Museum is the Hirshhorn. Sam was intrigued by the Ai Weiwei exhibit and took off running to see it.
The turn around.
Look or in Sam speak "Yook!"
Otis heard there was more Ai Weiwei inside and he made a break for it.
Just where is the continuation of the Ai Weiwei?
Ah - there it is.
Don't tell Ai Weiwei but I think Sam was trying to lick his work. Bad Sam!
His punishment was to be imprisoned in a room of letters.
After the museum, we got back on the Metro and headed to Great-Grandma's house for some milk and cookies.
And some drawing.
