With the nation's capital in the background, pawpaw Kramp stands on the DC Mall with four of his grandchildren. Afterwards, we walked over to the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History and toured the dinosaur, fossil, and gem collections. I believe the kids enjoyed most the ride down on the Metro train.
As a kid myself years ago, I spent many hours in the Smithsonian museums- including the National Zoo. I particularly liked the collections of postage stamps from all over the world, which then was housed in the Smithsonian "castle".
