Boo-Boo’s Fourth of July

Boo-Boo is an amigurumi tiger I designed at the request of my youngest son. Boo-Boo made his first appearance in this blog in late March when I traveled to California.

Today, Boo-Boo found himself in Washington, D.C., celebrating Independence Day 2010.

What follows are a few of the places Boo-Boo went and a few of the things he saw.

Boo-Boo started the day by taking the Metro from Arlington, Virginia to Washington, D.C.

Once he got off the train he headed over to the mall where he saw this float:

Boo-Boo loves art, and Henry Moore is one of his favorite sculptors, so naturally, he insisted that I take this photo:

Next, a picture of Boo-Boo at the carousel:
