Getting Out - National Christmas Tree

This girl is freezing...

Some how we managed to miss the National Christmas Tree last year, so one evening this week we took a nice brisk walk to check it out. Here's everything you need to know:
  • The tree itself is the centerpiece of the presentation, but it's far from the coolest part. We both really liked the surrounding small trees - one for each state (or territory!). There were also tons of model train sets around the base of the tree.
  • The National Christmas Tree has a small stage featuring live music every evening. The most entertaining portion of the children's choir we heard was the time between songs. The kids didn't realized they were miked, and they had lots of opinions to share. Kathryn particularly enjoyed the little girl complaining of "hyperthermia."
