Baseball and Free Musuem Day

We have found some fun things to do in our new place. Jason and I found some cheap tickets to the Washington Nationals baseball game.  The Nationals recently made it to the Playoffs.  Monday September 24th we rode the metro to the Nationals game.  It was a lot of fun.  As we walked in there are big headed mascots that were dressed up as the former Presidents of the United States.  George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln.  It was funny, they had them do a race in middle of an inning.  The Nationals won the game we went to 12-2.  It was neat to be able to see the capital from my seat and I believe we saw two helicopters coming from the White House. 

Another thing we found fun to do was Free Museum Day. Thanks to my friend Whitney for posting in her blog about it.  We got free tickets to a museum that normally $21.95 a ticket.  We went to see the museum called the Newsuem.  It is about the history of the news. It was really neat.  There is a room of newspapers from years back.  Jason and I saw a newspaper announcing the murder of Joseph Smith. It was pretty neat to see the first newspaper of that time period.  Also, there was a section honoring those that were in the towers of 9/11.  They had an antenna that as on top of the towers that fell.  It was crazy how much the metal turned and such.  It was very touching to see all the artifacts they had from 9/11. It was crazy to think that people's cell phones kept ringing for days after the attacks. Many family members still calling to try and get a hold of their loved ones.  It was very moving.  I am grateful for the knowledge of eternal families. 

I am excited to see all the neat and free things the D.C area has to offer while we live here.
