My mom was in town visiting and we took Zander to the National Museum of American History for the day yesterday. (I've started a modified maternity leave of sorts --working from home, dropping into the office as needed, etc.). The museum was closed for two years and just re-opened this Thanksgiving. There were lots of hands-on activities for children -- in addition to be able to see Dorothy's Ruby Slippers (worn in the Wizard of Oz) and The Star-Spangled Banner (the flag that inspired the song).
This photo is from the "cafe" (the cafeteria is still closed for remodeling), where Zander got an American flag cookie for dessert. Yummmm.
