Fun This Weekend

On Friday my wonderful husband and I spent a day together (something we need to do more of!) at the newly reopened US History Museum. They have done a wonderful job with the Star Spangled Banner, the flag that inspired it that is, but no photos are allowed to be made. The mounting is now archival, and it was really pretty awesome to see it so closely. The display is low light, and there is a pretty good historical story section too. We also saw the America at War display, it was really well done. They go from the Revolutionary War to Gulf 2, and even have a Huey in there. That thwop is so distinctive. The new Huey will have 4 blades. Better.
