Boy day-trip to Air and Space Museum

Saturday my boys rose and left before 4:30am for a flight to IAD Dulles and the day at the Smithsonian site. They saw the Enola Gay and a Concord. They saw many very historical planes. On the way back, yes they did get seats on the first plane they tried each way, they impressed an air marshall who discreetly gave them "Honorary Air Marshall" pins upon arrival in Chicago. The Space Shuttle Enterprise was pretty cool too!

The Enterprise was much bigger than I thought it would be! With the tiles on it, it almost looked fake. My husband loved the Concord and we still regret that we never flew on it when we had the chance. Ugh! I can't remember the deal they were giving to airline employees at the time but I do remember that it was cheap compared to the regular price but still hard to cough up when you are still in the diaper buying mode!
