Botanical Gardens

On Tuesday we ventured into DC to visit the United States Botanic Gardens. The main attraction was their Seasons Greenings exhibit which featured holiday plants and also Washington DC landmarks such as the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, and Capitol Building created entirely out of plant materials.

Other permanent exhibits included Jungle, Orchids, and World Deserts. I really liked the orchids. Abigail's favorite part was the occasional fountain and the "rain" that fell periodically. Another nice thing about the Garden was the fact that it was a very warm escape from the windy cold outside.

The girls really seemed to enjoy themselves. Abigail walked the whole time. She finally crashed on the train ride back to the car. Sarah fell asleep on the way home as well. We had a great time!
