my little sister spent a week in dc, and her stay was the most fun i’ve had in a very long time. it’s amazing to have a sibling who you watch grow into your best friend. she’s undoubtedly the coolest 10 year old on the east coast–i won’t bother to brag about how smart she is–the most important thing is her compassion, maturity, and loving nature. i cried like the 10 year old when she boarded the plane; her response: “bye shi-shi! see you next year!”
in case you’re looking for kid-friendly activities in washington, dc, we loved the natural history museum, dr. king monument, national zoo, and kayaking in georgetown. oh, and don’t forget trips to pinkberry for frozen yogurt.
