Washington DC - Family/Museum Visit

My mom was in town from Washington State way back on May 1st (trying to get caught up!) and we met her brother (from Phily) and his eldest daughter and her newly growing family in DC. We had a blast! We started at the Carousel on the mall. I enjoyed taking some pics of the horsies.

Check out the cool - ghost horse. It was also fitting since I was in the middle of reading "The Pact" by Jodi Picoult. The main event in the book happens at the carousel.
We went to the Museum of Natural History and the National Museum of the American Indian and the Botanical Gardens. I had fun taking pics of interesting things that caught my eye. My uncle did a better job of getting actual people in his shots:

The girls with their daddy on the carousel.

My cousin Amal, My Mom, My Aunt Zilan and Me - Aren't we colorful?

This is Samira, both girls just kept saying "WOOOW"

Seeing Double!

One of the coolest things I saw all day ~ a skull made out of baseballs by Brian Jungen. Have a lot more pics to post - another day - need to do some lesson planning for the last few weeks of school.
