A day at the Musium

Some of my favorite subjects are fashion and cooking and the museum of American history had some of the best representations. Let’s start with fashion. What better way to see some of the greatest fashion statements than on the first ladies them self’s.

 This is Michelle Obama's inaugural ball gown.  It is stunning.
 The jewels she wore.
The dresses of Hillary Clinton & Laura Bush are absolutely beautiful.
They did not have all the first ladies dresses in the museum but they had sketches of them. 
 My next favorite subject is cooking and who best to see is the iconic Julia Chiles.  Here is her Kitchen.
My guys were so patient waiting for me to get done with this section. 
The transportation section.  
The car companies that were in business.  
The Washington Monument.  We went up in an elevator 550 feet.
The city 550 feet up.
