The Udvar Hazy was another recommendation by a friend (seriously, she nailed it with her advice). The Udvar Hazy Center is sort of the sister museum to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. It’s a little ways out of the city but definitely worth the drive. This might top the list at being our favorite thing we did. This museum is huge, and free. It took the entire day to explore. Honestly planes and rockets are interesting sure, but not really my thing. But I was fascinated with this place. The planes were organized by time period and by World Wars. They also had foreign planes and bombers, including ones used by the Nazis and the Japanese in WWII. Along with that, the hangar also houses the space shuttle Discovery. It really was incredible to see up close. And so interesting to read about what life was like for astronauts before, during and after a trip into space. We would recommend this museum to anyone.
Adam and Carley offered to babysit so Mckay could take me out on a date :) we went to this cute little cafe they recommended called Cafe Berlin. We love trying new things and this was our first time trying authentic German food. It was so good and so fun to go out on a date with my love.
