Yesterday Noah and I had a fun afternoon outing in DC. Our first stop was the Smithsonian’s National Air & Space Museum. We saw lots of planes and NASA equipment. Check it out!
We of course had to stop by the gift shop on the way out. Our good friend Tommy gave Noah some money to buy a toy at the museum. Noah picked out a cool Marine One helicopter. Thank you, Tommy!
This was Noah’s fourth trip to the National Air & Space museum – it’s definitely his favorite DC spot.
Our next stop was the National Building Museum to visit “The Beach” – the new interactive exhibit for kids of all ages. The seashore is lined with beach chairs to relax in, and the beach slopes into an ocean made of nearly a million translucent plastic balls. Yeah, it’s basically a giant ball pit!
The Beach takes up almost the entire Great Hall of the museum – it’s huge! Noah jumped in from the shore’s edge, waded in the shallow end and swam in the deeper waters. He got stuck quite a few times – it can be hard to move with all the balls shifting around you – but that was part of the fun. See for yourself…

We hope you’re enjoying the summer. We sure are!
