Our latest excursion took us to explore the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights AND as a bonus, we saw the Magna Carta and the Nuremberg Laws.

The kids, who are fascinated by all things Presidential, were excited to see Thomas Jefferson’s and George Washington’s pictures on the murals on the wall.

Also, seeing the documents that Jefferson (and they learned about George Mason) wrote was a bonus.

Though they couldn’t remember the name of the person who signed the DofI so big that “King George could see it” (John Hancock), they did remember that someone had.

A nice, quick visit and another benefit of living where we do…hoping to inspire an appreciation of their hometown.
