What-What?! Week of August 28th

This week was extremely busy; the husband's mother came to visit, and we hit up the beach, and we've baked and sewed and crocheted all kinds of stuff.  Not all of it is going to fit in this post -- probably beach pictures will wait until next week.

While my mother-in-law was visiting, she and the husband took the kids to the Freedom of Flight Air museum in the south part of Seattle (might properly be Tukwila?).  It sounds like they had a really great time, and the place is so packed with things to do and look at, they only made it through a small portion of the collection.
Learning about the V-2 rocket.




I think this is an original space suit?

Learning about Apollo 11.



Tons and tons of airplanes everywhere, of course.

Saffron posing with a replica Wright Flyer -- this was one of her favorite things to see.




The kids area had a lot of great things to climb into and explore.





The tiniest helicopter!



Saffron gets an idea how the controls on a plane work.


Investigating.



The air traffic control tower looks really cool.  It had a radio where you could listen to the live traffic going on.


Air Force One, conveniently near the parking lot.


Leaving Air Force One before heading home.


Next time, I hope to go with.  Seems like there's a lot of cool stuff to see.  There's also a reserve collection in Everett, which is far closer -- might go to that one sooner rather than later.

Next week, pictures from the beach!
