Champions Across America DC Trip - Day 3

Today the Champion Kids had their photos taken in front of the Capital - It was great! After the photos at the Capital, we had a luncheon at the Capital with our Senators. Senator Udall from New Mexico was presiding over the Senate so he couldn't make it to the luncheon but I guess he had a good excuse! His staff did come down and meet with us and gave Evan a personal note from the Senator which was very cool. We had lunch with Frankie, Champion from New York, and his family. They were really nice. Evan was asked to give an interview for our local News Station which aired later that night - he was very excited about that! He was also excited to find out that the microphones in the Senate Hearing Room where we had lunch were live. He turned one on and started to talk to the very full room - thank goodness security didn't come for us! After lunch we had some free time so we went back the finish the Natural History Museum and visited the National Archives. We saw the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. We also took a walk through the Sculpture Garden across the street from the Archives. We had dinner with my Aunt who lives in DC and then took the kids back to the ESPN Zone to play games. Another great day!
