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.
