Another Aussie in our midst!

Our latest visit from Oz is our 22yr old son Benjamin.

We took him to Washington DC and Charlotte North Carolina

In DC we saw the White House:


The war memorials:




The Presidential Memorials and the MLK memorial:

 
And we went to some museums, the National Building Museum had a massive ball pit!


Yes Ben temporarily lost his shoe!

So pleased to be back on 'dry' land
But the best museum was the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum near Dulles Airport in Virginia:


Yes they had the actual space shuttle discovery on display!!!!


And we even saw an official motorcade entering the White House gates!


So I think Ben got a great introduction to the Eastern side of America, we can't wait to explore it more!
