The Tourist Turkeys

Sorry I missed saying...."Happy Thanksgiving" this year, but with all this Super Mom has to do these days other items take president at times. But for Thanksgiving this year we decided to take a little trip. We didn't want to go too far so we decided on D.C. for a few nights with our hotel points & take in the sights. I saw that Siena was learning a few things about history at school & thought it would be a little educational for her as well.

We got to most of the Smithsonian museums but Siena was more about moving on to the next thing. She was happy to see things that she already knew about, like Dorothy's Ruby Red slippers in the American History Museum,  but I guess a 5 yr old in a museum can only look at so much. We did a lot of walking & I mean a lot of walking! We took the train up so we had no car & rode the Metro around town then it was off on foot. We also happened to drop into town just when the "Occupy D.C." Protests had started. As you will see in one of the photos Siena would have been too happy to camp out with them. She loved the tents. But at least it was education to say the least.

We decided on China Town for our actual Thanksgiving Dinner but wasn't that impressed with our food. I don't think D.C. is known for it's China Town as much as other large cities. Yet again, the experience is always worth the education.

Just want to point out to please bare with me on this post & probably more to come, as Blogger has changed a bit & I've also had to find new image hosting sites. I'm not one for change when it comes to computers so hang in there with me.

Looks like you had a fabulous mini vacation. It is sad how Chinatown has slowly died out in the last ten years or so. Glad you had a fun Thanksgiving!
