Recap of Day 3 - Arlington, Smithsonian and We're on A Boat!

Started the morning off at Arlington National Cemetery. Very moving. Got to see JFK's grave site, the amazing Changing of the Guard Ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and other famous politicians and military officials. Then it was on to the Smithsonian complex to tour the Museum of Natural History, Holocaust Museum, Museum of American History, the famous Red Castle and Air and Space. After returning back to the hotel and having some was taco night!!...we went out for a boat rid on the Potomac River. Lucked out and no rain came and saw an amazing sunset. All had a great time dancing, exchanging pins and meeting people from other states. Time went by too quick and before we knew it, bed time had come.
