Our final day started off chilly and rainy, which resulted in a change of itinerary from the National Zoo to the Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, Virginia (beside Dulles International Airport). This is a companion facility to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum on the National Mall.
As usual, we had a nice breakfast in the Tennessee Dining Room at the 4-H Center and then boarded the busses for Virginia.
Our morning began again with breakfast in the Tennessee Dining Room at the 4-H Center. We then boarded the busses for the US Capitol Building to meet with Senate Chaplain Barry Black.
When we arrived we grabbed a quick picture of the entire group before heading around to the back of the building.
Our day started with a buffet breakfast in the Tennessee Dining Room at the 4-H Center, and then we boarded the bus for the Museum of the Bible, which opened in 2017.
Upon arrival we were greeted by Heather who told us a little about the museum. She explained that it is comprised of seven floors and it would take nine days (8 hours each) to see and read everything that is on exhibit. She also told us about the world’s largest upside down LCD screen that covers the ceiling of the first floor.
My oldest daughter Kate is an 8th-grader at Lipscomb Academy, and this week I have the pleasure of being a chaperone for their class field trip to Washington DC. Our trip began with a 4am wake up and then a 5am Uber to the airport. The check-in was a bit of a hassle with such a large group but was otherwise uneventful.
