Our Night At The Museum II Adventure

Many of you know of the movie Night At The Museum II. This is a movie we have fun watching, starting when we were living in China, because of hilarious scenes like when Larry (the main character) and a security guard, Brunden, are arguing over how to say Brunden's name, and when General Custer tries to say Sacagawea's name.

So, after a forty mile bike ride, Dad and I decided to stop at the Smithsonian Castle, the setting for the scene with Brunden. After parking our bikes, we went inside. In the movie, the inside has a hard wood floor, many halls, and glass exhibits. The real building has carpets, a few rooms, and open spaces.

To our luck, in the middle of the room was the actual pile of loot (from the real movie set!) on which the Egyptian Pharaoh who was trying to take over the world sat. After taking a few pictures, we went around the sides of the building to see if any other entrances were the ones Larry went in, but none were it. I guess what we have to do now is go and see all the other museums where Larry Daley went!

Hah! I just figured out how to leave official comments! A monster has been unleashed! A 40 mile bike ride!! You guys will have to help me train. I want to bike to Harper's Ferry this spring. I didn't realize Night at the Museum II was at the Smithsonian! I was just there yesterday for the Book Festival (which was awesome, btw). I should have stopped in to take a look!

We actually rode our bikes past the book festival, forgetting it was going on until we pedaled by. We were trying to beat the rain home so we didn't stop, but it looked really packed.

The ride to Harper's Ferry along the C&O Canal is fantastic. You should definitely do it!
