We rode the metro to the Verizon Center and got there a little early so we went to the bathroom at the Marriot and took the kids down to Dunkin Donuts before going in. This was kind of cool . . . Make as much of an adventure as you can :)
As a result of winning our tickets, we sat in the nosebleed section. That was ok though because we saw some people we know who had also won tickets the same way we did. This was much louder than Expoland was since everything was inside. We expected that and took earplugs. Lydia and Emily still thought it was too loud even with their earplugs.
Funniest part of the whole trip . . . as we were riding in on the Metro, Lydia noticed the "not allowed" signs in the car. She was noticing that you can't have food, pets, etc. She pointed to each one and said "no smoking." "no littering," "no food," "no juice boxes," "no pets." I just about died . . . "no juice boxes." Evidently the Dangerous or Flammable Items symbol looks like a juice box. :) Too funny!! Fun day!
