I have both my kids here so I will make this quick! We had a nice Sunday with Adam after doing some cleanup, going downtown to Artechouse's fantastic In Peak Bloom
exhibit, which is entirely interactive -- wave your arms and graphics of sakura petals go flying, touch a plant and it plays music -- and uses AR not only to make ghostly animals appear, but to make the drinks from the in-gallery bar bloom, shoot fireworks, and send dragons flying from the glasses. They strictly limit the number of people in the exhibit at a time, so it wasn't crowded and it was visually amazing.
By then we knew Daniel's flight was delayed due to weather and mechanical issues, so we went to the Freer Gallery's Whistler in Watercolor
plus the recently refurbished Peacock Room, which now has copies of the original blue china displayed there. Then we picked up Daniel at Dulles, went to my parents' for dinner (plus graduation cake for Adam and birthday cake for my father), and now we're home doing laundry and trying to get things organized while Daniel shows us Stephen Colbert playing D&D for Red Nose Day. Hope everyone had a great weekend!
