Apparently the United States government is going to start working again (this is from last year, but it still applies), and the Internet isn’t big enough for the jokes. However, I think there is plenty of space to show you some of the fun that tourists and tax-payers can once again enjoy without resorting to Night at the Museum 2 screenings.
My youngest son, Zane, and I were guests of the Hilton Garden Inn earlier this summer. It is located within walking distance of the White House and the National Mall, so we took advantage of our location, location, location, and saw some stuff (but first we took advantage of the omelet bar in the HGI lobby, because, hello, omelets!).
All photos taken on my iPhone. That’s right.
