Today was a beautiful day for a field trip. My sister in law’s family picked the kids and I up this morning and we headed to a nearby Air and Space Museum. (Tim had taken the kids there awhile back, but I had been working at the time, so I hadn’t gotten to go.) I really enjoyed the experience. I think my favorite part was standing next to the Space Shuttle and realizing how huge it is in person. The kids were awed by the many planes and helicopters. The museum also has a mock air traffic control tower you can go in. Since the museum is located next to an airport, you can watch planes as they land and take off. The kids had a wonderful time, made better by the opportunity to spend the day with their cousins.
