My niece's dad was in town, so we brought him along for some airplane-viewing fun.
I don't have any deep insights or clever commentary about the trip, but it was fun and I thought I'd share some pictures with y'all.
There are some great things about the AFB museum:
- it's very rarely crowded
- it's not too far away (<45 minutes)
- it's free
- there's lots of walking, indoors and out
- the planes are amazing and capture everybody's attention
- it's a great place to discuss modern history

Ben loves to look at the swoopy shapes of the fighters and seems a little awed by the gigantic transports and bombers. It's not too hard to keep him on the right side of the fences.

Anyway, it was a great field trip. What are your favorite places to take your kiddos?
