Airplane Museum Daycation

We went on a fun little "daycation" today... to the Hill Aerospace Museum. James was so excited to "see a airpanes" that he could hardly contain himself. It's really fun that he's old enough to get so excited about stuff. FINALLY- after mommy showered and we drove so far, far away- we saw them. The airplanes. And they were gorgeous. "Wow... SO BIG!" was James' general consensus. When he saw bombs, he thought they were little airplanes and would coo, "Ah... so little and cute and so tiny!" in a talk-sweetly-about-babies sort of voice. It was really cute.

We got to the museum around lunchtime and weren't sure what to do. I asked James if he wanted to have lunch in a restaurant, but he adamantly replied, "No. I see airpanes." So we grabbed some MickyD's and ate outside of the museum-- surrounded by and even directly under some pretty amazing airplanes. For my "airpane" loving son, it was heaven. He kept talking about our "airplane picnic." Darling.

Anyway- it was fun. I took tons of pictures, and I plan to scrapbook a few more of them. But here's this one for now. The half-shade half-glaring-sun aspect of the picture sucks quite a bit. But look at that smile. I figure it makes up for it.

Hooray for "daycations" and hooray for a fun little boy!

That's adorable! Maybe he'll grow up to be a pilot just like his daddy.

That is a very fun picture, and adventure!

When I first saw the picture, I just thought he was excited about the chicken nuggets -- I guess I was just projecting.

Sounds like fun! We're hoping to get over there and check out the airplanes soon, too. So cute that James thought the bombs were cute little baby airplanes. :)
