Jacob's Spring Break - Day 3

Jacob made it thorough the day without being captured digitally as far as I can tell. His day started “with a 2 + plus mile tour of Arlington National Cemetery” where he “experienced the Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of Unknown Soldiers.” Then it was off to a tour of the the Capitol building. I am sure that was interesting. Then they went to the “Smithsonian Museums (American History & Air & Space)” which is an appropriate place to go after the Capitol building. There has to be a display there describing what is done with hot air.

Enough with the commentary, so we are back to the events. After dinner they “completed a walking tour of the Vietnam, Lincoln & Korean Memorials.” I am sure it was an event filled day. It seems like the saw a lot pf places today. Jacob did report at 9:07 – Washington time – that he was having fun. Quotes are from the official blog that is here.

As for the Hot Air thought, it was the French that actually flew the first manned hot air balloon in 1783. A replica of that type of balloon is at the Smithsonian.
