Searching for something to do other than "sit around," Mom and I took the boys to the National Air and Space Museum Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, Virginia. That's just a fancy way of saying "the other Simthsonian space museum that allows you to avoid the DC Metro." I convinced my unsure mother that Jackson would love this museum because it is filled with airplanes and helicopters (Jax's most recent obsessions).
I was correct!
"eeee ... hellacopta"
While we were there, we also had the wonderful opportunity to see the United States Discovery that has just recently returned from space after completing its last voyage. I know Jackson won't remember this, but at least we'll have pictures one day!
"spaysheep ... ooo ... wow"
Jax even got the chance to take in his very first IMAX film called "Rescue" about ... you guessed it ... airplanes, helicopters, ships, and firetrucks. It was right up his alley!
