We take on the Capitol for Spring Break... Is there gonna be roller coasters?

Steve and decided to pile in the car and drive to Washington DC for spring break. Once we told the kids, the boys wanted to know if we could go to Busch Gardens Williamsburg - we told them it was closed but secretly if the weather was good, we were going to surprise them with it!  It was quite the trip.  We drove to Pittsburgh and spent the night before rolling into our Nation's capitol.  We spent three action packed days in DC checking out the Air & Space Museum, the National Natural History Museum, the US Capitol where we met our congressman, the National Zoo and as many monuments as we could see.  Then we drove to Virginia and spent one very lovely weather day at Busch Gardens Williamsburg.  We spent our last day at Jamestown seeing both the historic site and the living museum where the kids could go back in time to that era. They we stopped on the way home for a visit with our friend who lives near Cincinnati (perfect resting spot before the last six hours home).  I think the boys liked Busch Gardens the best!
