    Awesome pics. I always think of the Dinobots when I see dinosaur exhibits to.

    They didn't have a TF toy in the Nat'l Museum of American History? I thought sure I remembered seeing one when I was there in 2004, but I could be wrong. Maybe they rotate the toys out from time to time or something.

    DC is a great trip, and generally an inexpensive one too since nearly all the exhibits are free...and you avoid eating at McDonald's near the national mall where it's $8 for a "value" meal.

    Cool pictures. I went to DC on a high school trip about... oh, eleven years ago now (when the hell did I get so old?). Beautiful city, one of the coolest places I've ever been. I'd love to go back, especially since I've been playing Fallout 3 so much lately.

    Sweet pics!

    I've been to DC before... the eighth graders at my middle school does a 3-4 day trip to DC every year in April, and my mom has served as a chaperone for the trip since... I don't remember when exactly she started doing so, but she's done it for a long time. She isn't going to go this year, though.

    Great pictures, did you happen to go to the crime and punishment museum? It's excellent if your into CSI or mafia-type stuff. I was in DC a few months ago, but only for a day, and didn't get to see as much as I wanted to. I'd really like to go back soon, especially since it's a much shorter drive than I thought it was.
