Taking Grandpa to Smithsonian Folklife Festival Featuring Peru

With grandpa in town, we took a trip to the National Mall where the Smithsonian Folklife Festival was happening.

On the way to the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, we stopped by the National Gallery of Art’s Sculpture Garden and its fountain.
