Crime Museum!

I've made it a goal to visit as many museums while I can while I'm in D.C., so last Saturday Eve and I took ourselves to the Crime Museum!
We had lots of fun experiencing ways people were punished throughout history. So glad I didn't live in the Medieval Ages, but the stocks were fun to play in :)

I've always wondered what it would be like to be behind bars...

I think the perp is the blond one :)

The worst part is the drinking fountain is located on the back of the toilet. Disgusting!!

We decided the life of a captured criminal sounded boring, but learning about how to catch them sounded fun! Maybe I should change my profession- I did find one mistake in the exhibit. Something was mislabeled in the crime lab. I'll let you wonder on what and make it your mission to find it when you visit!!

So I guess it's official...

My car now sports Maryland plates. After having to pay for all that new licensing and registration, I think I'll stay here for awhile just to not have to go through that again!

I've been working full time again, but I've still managed to go see a few sites around D.C. Last weekend, I made it to the National Archives. Cool building- it houses the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Awesome! Felt like I had fallen into "National Treasure".

I also wandered through Chinatown for awhile and looked at the many different shops they have there. I love how the signs are in Chinese and English :)

I've also managed to put my Christmas presents to good use and finished one of the puzzles I received. Love puzzles :) Can't wait for the adventures that are sure to come here in Maryland!
