US Botanical Garden

A couple weeks ago I was able to visit the US Botanical Garden and forgot to blog about it! It it literally right next to the Capitol and all of the Smithsonian museums so it’s pretty convenient to visit.

botanical1There are so many cool and exotic plants to see at the garden. It houses tons of plants from around the world at all times of the year. It’s a huge greenhouse and was pretty cool. It was also very warm inside for the plants so I even had to take off my jacket.

botanical2I would’ve stayed for a guided tour but since I saw so much in one day I was too tired to participate but maybe I’ll come back at another time to get the full experience. I’d recommend seeing it for anyone visiting D.C.

 

 

Children’s Museum

So today I got to go to the Indianapolis Children’s Museum for the first time ever and it was really fun! It was a Reslife sponsored event so we all got to go for free and I’m so glad I went! When we arrived we were greeted by LJ who got us pumped about seeing all the attractions.

I got to see the dinosaur exhibit, the famous children in history exhibit, and browse all the different places and sights in the museum. I even awkwardly got kicked out of the butterfly exhibit because it was only for children 5 and under. Whoops!

I stayed for an hour before all the children there started to get to me and I ended my trip there by visiting the bookstore. I almost bought a sweatshirt before I realized I forgot my credit card in my dorm! Oh well, at least I’ll have more money for shopping tomorrow!
