We happen to live so close to Davis Monthan Air Force Base, that it's common place to be playing outside while jets and helicopters fly overhead leaving my children, heads upturned, in complete awe.
Ethan has already decided that he is going to be a "Pilot Helicopter' when he grows up and he pretty much thinks jets and 'elicopters' are the coolest things ever. So we decided to take the kids to the Air and Space Museum. This museum is one of those local gems I've driven past for most of my lifetime but never actually gone to. As soon as we told them we were going to see the Airplanes, they wanted to know:
"But are you going to stop the car?"
"Are we going to get OUT of the car?"
"Are we going to see the airplanes but not from in our car?"
Yes, my loves. Yes to all of those questions.
We began our adventure at Dunkin Donuts.
Does this LOOK like the face of happiness?
He was confused because he thought we'd chosen Donuts INSTEAD of airplanes.
No surprise, upon arrival, they wanted to know if they could go IN all the planes.
I don't think THIS was what they had in mind. :)
There are no words to describe the feeling in my heart the moment I saw and heard the excitement in my little's voices and in their actions. I'm talking full on, "WOWS!" and "THIS IS SO COOL!" They see things differently than adults do. They find delight in the simple fact that before them are hundreds of GIANT airplanes!
Okay, well, Brian might have been just as excited.
Ethan is glimpsing his future.
And he likes what he sees.
Oooh La la...
(For the record, I really don't much care for TC. I'd prefer this were IceMan or Slider.
I love these photos....
Checkin' out his shadow....I want to be a kid again.
