|It's about 8 pounds of dimes and nickels.|
We went to the Navy Yard and walked around and then went to the Navy Museum which was interesting. After the museum we went to a baseball game. Did you know Washington DC has a baseball team, the "Nationals?" I didn't either! We got hotdogs and other junk which is what going to a baseball game is really all about. Now that I've seen real baseball I have a few beefs with the Wii version, which I'm pretty good at. It's not the same. I might not actually be good at baseball. This was the first pro baseball game Kira ever went to. I wouldn't call her a fan. In about the middle of the first inning she said, "Has it started yet?" and then at the end of the first inning she said, "Can we go?" We said that we were going to stay long enough to sing the song in the seventh inning stretch (which we had all been singing all morning) and Sam said, "What song?" Not huge baseball fans. When asked what their favorite part of the game was they both said, "When Teddy Roosevelt body slammed the sausage," which taken out of context sounds INSANE, but that actually happened during the mascot race. Three sausages were kicking the presidents' asses until Teddy caught up and body slammed one of them and that sort of took the wind out of the other sausages' sails and George Washington won.
After the game we went to the Mall and walked through the Air and Space museum. Sam LOVED it. He wants to go again and spend a whole day. I think he could probably go there every day and not get tired of it. He liked the "fecal bags" that the astronauts had to use, complete with two finger sleeves to cut the feces off in a scissor-like motion, and he loved when I told him that "fecal escapees" are a bit of a problem in space.

Then we came home and made pizza and sat around and watched TV.
