National USAF Museum

Last week, B decided he wanted to take Little Man to the National Museum of the Air Force. We live close enough to it to justify driving there and back in a day, and Little Man loves all things military...so off we went!

The boys had a great time. Little Man was so well behaved I felt like I should have video taped it. It was awesome. I also decided that "Little Man" is not an appropriate name for him anymore...as he's nearly as tall as B and taller than all the other kids in his class by a foot. But, he's still my little man so it's staying :)

The place was actually fairly gigantic, and free, and had planes from the first plane to the current planes. Even some german planes from WWII.

There was a cockpit to play in...



And a plane with a big nose...



Little Man really liked this one...



And B was annoyed that he couldn't pull this out of the side of one...



But, this one was my personal favorite...



This medal was outside the museum...



And of course we drove past Terminator Jesus, so that had to make it in.



It was awesome.

Whoa! For a second I thought you lived near me and I had to go re-read where the museum you went to is located. The museum in GA looks extremely similar to the one you went to!

I actually love going just to see all the old school planes!

Oh how fun! I love museums where you can touch and play with the things on display. What a fun trip!
