#SPYArtifact : Pocket Incendiary Device and Containers of Time Delay Pencils. Issued by the OSS, circa 1943-1945. Acts of sabotage disable an enemys infrastructure, industry and communications. Resistance groups cooperated in sabotage operations, often using specialized, concealed explosives. These two time-delay pencils were needed to detonate a pocket-sized incendiary device. They controlled the timing of the explosion, allowing an agent to escape safely. . #spymuseum #spies #sabotage #spy #history #exhibit #DC #internationalspymuseum #espionage repost from @spymuseum #reposta #reposta_app @reposta_app

The #internationalspymuseum was absolutely awesome! The new facility is amazing. Tons of interactive displays and a fun role play which ties the whole experience together. If you’re ever in DC it’s definitely worth the cost 💵 of admission. Agent Cover: Adrian Rodriguez, Personal Trainer from Reykjavik, Iceland. Mission: Classified

I spent my Wednesday evening hanging out with a bunch of engineers. My engineering friend invited me as a guest to a Spy Museum Construction event by American Institute of Steel.  They had some presentations on the engineering and design of the building which was neat to hear. The event was held in the Atrium which was inspired by the Veil in the spy world. The building design theme was "hidden in plain sight." Keep scrolling right for some fun engineering puns! #internationalspymuseum #internationalspymuseumdc #nationscapital #dc #washingtondc #districtofcolumbia   #exploredc #mydccool #igdc #dclife #WednesdayVibes #spy #spymuseum #spymuseumdc

Exploring D.C. pt 2: #internationalspymuseum was fascinating. Much more in depth than I was expecting and I’m stoked to go again eventually! Plus a shot of the beautiful view we got to enjoy from our hotel room 😊 #adventureisoutthere

You may know their names — but you probably don’t know they were also spies. The shadowy warriors who helped shape outcomes on the battlefield in WWII. • The “Spying in WWII” exhibit reveals the stories of OSS operatives who slipped behind enemy lines to organize resistance cells, sabotage operations, and uncover enemy plans. Women and men from all walks of life opportunities to serve—usually without medals or fame. And often, the more successful they were, the less their contributions are known. . . . . . . . . #internationalspymuseum #spymuseum #museum #history #spies #WWII #dc

Best mother-daughter trip 💕 Washington DC we will be back!

When you visit a new place, do you like to catch all the tourist spots and most instagrammable destinations, or do you prefer to get more of a local feel? I guess I can cheat and say the answer is both for me. Some of the tourist spots are popular for a reason, and I’d hate to miss them, but you don’t truly experience a place without going a little deeper. I guess the real decision making comes when you have limited time. Since Washington D.C. is the most accessible city we’ve ever visited (the metro, the monuments, the museums: the whole works!), we’ve become frequent visitors. This trip was just Wesley and me. He was in need of some mom-time and Dad stepped in to help that happen. We skipped all the usual monuments and most of the museums and discovered a world of not-so-hidden gems. I’ll have to do another post some time for just the International Spy Museum (did you know we can make weather?!??) and it would’ve been worth the drive just to have lunch at Teaism. Check out today’s blog post for a deeper look at D.C.! As always, family-friendly and handicap accessible.

#SpyArtifact : Key Pattern Device, CIA, 1960s. This sexy beast of a device was used to copy keys of the old-fashioned type of locks known as warded locks. The thumbscrews hold the key in position while the feelers are adjusted to conform precisely to the pattern of the teeth.

Still in DC for this post on our 3500 mile, 4-week trip along this great countries east coast. All the history, friendly people, and terrific food made this an amazing trip! We are very blessed by the Lord to have the ability to do all this. 😁 #internationalspymuseum was a fun, but long place to visit. It was very Interactive and the kids felt like they were playing one huge video game the entire time. So many great things to see and learn here you could spend all day. #holocaustmuseum was so horrific to see what evil lies in the heart of men. So many people died at the hands of the Nazi which stands for national Socialists. It is so horrific the effects of socialism. #libraryofcongress was super cool! The building was amazing and its architecture and obviously the items inside of it are priceless. It was interesting to know that Thomas Jefferson sold 3000 books to the Library of Congress after it was burnt down during the War of 1812. #gutenbergbible in the Library of Congress there is an actual copy of the Gutenberg Bible. This Bible change the world because of movable type in a printing press. Such an amazing technological advancement and now we can all read the Bible for ourselves. Praise the Lord! #capitalbuilding the building was awesome. Would be nice if the people inside were too... 😆 Like I said, praise the Lord for this fantastic trip that we got to be on. God is good all the time. In the good in the bad we praise the Lord!

Be yourself; everyone else is already taken. - Oscar Wilde I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best. - Marilyn Monroe Two quotes that sums up my Birthday pretty damn good. #NoteToSelf Don’t forget to eat when you drink or you’ll be a hot mess..

I've always wanted to visit the @spymuseum - and we made it a priority on this trip!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Spy Museum is located in that National Mall area - like many of the Smithsonian museums, but it's not a part of the Smithsonian "network" and it is not a free museum. That being said, there is a LOT you can do for free in DC - and that leaves room in the budget for some paid activities, like the Spy Museum - which truly was an interactive experience!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When you enter, you're provided a secret identity and as you work your way through the museum there are a series of activities that you participate in - scanning your badge and remembering your secret identity information.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It was a little overwhelming trying to remember the secret identities of the kids, but we had fun regardless! LOL.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #internationalspymuseum #spymuseum #007 #gorving #socialmediamom #rvlife #fulltimefamilies #fulltimervfamily #coddiwompling #rvfamily #bossmom #kidsoutandabout #familyroadventures #workfromhomemom #raisingkidpreneurs #travelwithkids #fulltimetravel #fulltimefamily #digitalnomadfamily #wahmlife #familyroadtrip #travelfamily #rvlivingwithkids #roadschooling #familyrv #roadschool #rvliving #podcastmom #homeiswhereyouparkit #familypreneur
