June 15 Photos

Another great day of museums and sites! First off, the Newseum. One word: AMAZING!!!! Really cool to see all the historic newspapers and news broadcasts over the years from historic events and people. So much stuff to see and interact with. Some of us even made our own TV news broadcast. Wish we had more than two hours to spend there!

From there we headed to the ESPN Zone for a great lunch buffet. Luckily we got a steal on souvenirs as we found out the ESPN Zone franchise is closing down, so everything was 70% off. Woohoo, bargains! We had time to play a few games, shop and a quick jaunt to Starbucks...YUM!

Avoiding a light sprinkle, we walked over to the famous Ford's Theater, the site where Abe Lincoln was assassinated. We then road over to the Museum of American Art. It was great to see so many different pieces of artwork and had fun completing a scavenger hunt. Before heading back to the hotel for an evening clothing change, we stopped for a few at the Washington Monument and World War II Memorial.

After dinner, we saw "Thurgood", a one-man play starring Laurence Fishbourne, at the Kennedy Center. It was very interesting, intriguing and funny. Great job Morpheus!

Tomorrow is Capitol Hill day where we get all fancy dressed up and meet our state's politicians!
