As is becoming our Thanksgiving Day tradition, Andrew and I spent the day down at the Smithsonian. We started at the National Air and Space Museum, with hopes of seeing Magnificent Desolation, the moon-IMAX movie; however, we were too late for the first showing, so we moved on.

From there, we stopped at the Hirshhorn Sculpture Garden, which neither of us had walked through before.

On the way to our next stop, we took a long-cut by the carousel so I could snap a few pictures.

Next we went to the Natural History Museum to check out the Columbian Gold exhibit.

When we got home, Andrew cooked up a Thanksgiving feast for us, and we had a quiet evening at home. All-in-all, a great day.

All of my pictures for the day are in my Flickr photo album.
