There was a line and it took us about 30 to 45 minutes to get into said Spy Museum. You get to choose your own secret spy identity before heading to the briefing room about your "mission". We all were enjoyed the museum, but decided that it is much more suited for older kids. We couldn't take Hannah Beth's stroller inside, so Chris and I had to take turns carrying our 23 pound squirming bundle for the hour it took us to get through. I did enjoy seeing the Aston Martin car that was driven by "James Bond" in one of his movies. Pretty cool. I also walked away from the spy museum trying to figure out who in DC was a tourist and who was a spy.
Our hotel was also a few blocks from the Ford Theatre where Lincoln was shot. Luke has been very interested in President Lincoln lately, and he was all about seeing the theatre. Across the street is the house where Lincoln was taken after the shooting, and where he died only hours later. I had remembered seeing these things as a 7th grader on our school trip. Walking in the same spot where our countries history has taken place never gets old.
It was an absolutely beautiful day. A little chilly and windy, but the sky was clear and the sun was shinning. We spent the next 5 hours walking to see the White House,
