Veteran’s Day Fun at the Smithsonians

Back on Veterans Day, we found ourselves with an unplanned free day.   Everybody had the day off except Sam’ preschool, but we let him play hookie.  It was a drizzly, gray day, but I decided it would be fun to hit the museums downtown, since we don’t get down there often enough.  I was...
