On Monday went to the spy museum, where we were not allowed to take pictures ( as we learned after our first (first group below)) in the museum it had a test at the ginning and end to remember the information on your particular character as well as information on the history of spying.

We then went to the Smithsonian art museum (conveniently located directly accross the street) to see an exhibit on the art of video games, Where we saw games from a recreation of Pac-Man (the game system was so basic (more basic than the original, it only had one sixteenth (4kB) the memory of the original game) that there was only one ghost at a time (blinking rapidly between ghosts) and the collectible dots looked like walls) to modern Xbox 360, wii, and play station games (and everything in between). While the we saw a game even my mother liked (called flower, for play station 3, hopefully she will get a play station for that game)!

The next day (yesterday) we went to the national zoo (picture groups 2- end, below)
