After this we walked around the Capitol to take some photos of the outside. It was huge and not many people were around there. It was very hot today and on our way to the Air and Space Museum we decided to stop at the Botanical Garden to cool off a bit. They seemed to have a nice collection of plants, but I know nothing about them! Then we headed to the Air and Space Museum. The place was huge! All the museums were open until 9pm for summer hours so we always went in the afternoon. This was a great idea because all the tour and school groups left about 3-4 and it was just use and other families so none of the museums were busy. We both really enjoyed the museum and spent probably 4-5 hours there. By this point we were hungry and headed to the Metro to go to Ben's Chili Bowl! Derek saw this on Man vs Food and Obama had also eaten there so it is kind of famous. We sat right next to where Obama did :) I personally didn't like the food but Derek sure did.
