Woke up around 6:30 AM and headed down for breakfast. The breakfast was pretty much the same except we had biscuits n' gravy as the main course. After breakfast we walked out of the lobby and waited for the shuttle. The shuttle came, picked us up, and drove us to the metro station.
Today we were going to Ford's Theatre, The Petersen House, and the US Postal museum, and Carl's interview.
First, we did Ford's Theatre. When we arrived we were a bit early so we looked inside the gift shop while we waited. When the theatre and museum opened, we quickly grabbed our audio remotes and got started with the tour. The tour was excellent! I loved the museum area with all the facts about that time zone. Once we were all done with the museum part we headed up to the actual theatre. When we entered the room we heard and watched some people working on stage preparing for the next play. We quietly walked over to the room where President Lincoln got shot and peeked inside. We spent a little while there listening to the extra stuff on the audio remote (thing!) and waited on Carl video taping the room.
When we left the building we walked across the street to the Petersen house. We quickly walked through it and then walked back to the Metro Station. We hopped on a train and rode to the station where the U.S. Postal Museum was located. We spent a couple of hours there and then shortly afterward we headed toward Foggy Bottom where Carl was doing his interview. Once we arrived at the building a man who worked there greeted us and let us in his office (by the way this is the man who Carl is interviewing!!). Carl set up his camera and equipment then started his interview.
His interview went quite well. After his interview we went to Starbucks and mom got a pumpkin spice latte.
Capitol South was our next stop. We checked out the Library of Congress. We spent about half an hour there because it was about to close. We enjoyed it very much. As we were going out we had to go through security. Carl had just bought a book on D.C. and the security machine things (the ones that you walk through) didn't approve of that book. The guard had to ask Carl whether or not it was his. She let us through though.
Tonight we had sweet n' sour chicken for dinner at the hotel. It was delicious!! After dinner we pretty much rested up for the day ahead of us, which was walking around all day.
END OF DAY 2
