The Bureau of Engraving and Printing

This morning we made a quick trip into the district to visit the Bureau of Engraving and Printing - where they made money!!  I guess during the summer it's usually really busy and difficult to get into but today it was almost totally empty!  We got a parking spot right outside and walked right onto a tour!  This is seriously the best week to visit anywhere in DC - we aren't in school yet and the rest of the country is!!
You can't take any pictures on the tour of the Money Factory but it was really cool to watch so many bills being printed! It's a real working factory and you walk through catwalks over the factory floor!  The kids thought it was pretty neat but Declan was tired!
