Tuesday Nettie and I rode the subway in from the Greenbelt station(Bert and Bill live in Bel Air, MD so we had to drive there first.). Nettie thinks public transit is one of the coolest things in the world. (We even had to change lines coming and going!) Since it was about lunch time we went to the Old Post Office Pavilion and ate in the food court then we went up the bell tower. After that we walked over to the National Air and Space Museum. Planes and rockets are neato. Then the Hirshorn. You all would have been so proud of Nettie - we walked into the first room and she says "This is art?" (It was a bunch of large geometric shapes and/or stripes). Yes, sweetie, when you grow up you can get paid lots of money to make colored trapezoids. She liked some of the other paintings and the sculptures. There was also a loooong video of a Rube-Goldberg like set-up that was cool. We only did the third level, the second was closed for installation and I couldn't remember if the basement had much. After that we walked on down the Mall a bit and then went home.

I flew home Monday. Mom, Dad, and Nettie stayed in Pawtucket for a couple more days then drove back to Maryland. Dad and Nettie spent most of yesterday (Thursday) at the Baltimore Aquarium. I think today they are mostly just visiting with Bert, Bill, and Aunt Gail (came up from the Eastern Shore) and maybe some of my cousins. I left my camera with Nettie so I'll put her pictures up on Picasa after they get back.
