U.S. Botanic Garden and Natural History Museum

We decided to go visit the U.S. Botanic Garden because a co-worker told us that the Corpse flower would be in bloom.  It only blooms for 24-48 hours and has a smell of putrid, rotting flesh.  It is HUGE.  Unfortunately when we got there it was not blooming, but we did get to see a lot of the other beautiful plants.

Afterwards we stopped at the Natural History Museum to see the dinosaurs, fossils and other exciting things.
