Papa's Playground

This weekend, we were supposed to go to Disney on Ice, but I misplaced the tickets. We decided instead to go to the Museum of Flight but to make a quick stop to see my dad first since he works near the museum.

We started out letting the Bambinos run around the hangar a bit....and tried to get a family picture.
I've given in and decided I have to be ok with these being the best family pictures we get - hey at least we're all four in the picture!

When the plane came in that my dad was waiting for, we watched from the break room and gave the Bambinos their first sucker.
They were hilarious! Bug got the hang of it right away, but Peanut wasn't so sure.

My dad works for a company that airlifts people to the airport so an ambulance can take the patient to the hospital. I didn't realize how much pull they have over airspace - they even held up the President when he was here!

Once the ambulance pulled away, we went to look at the helicopter and jet they transport people in.
Peanut was perfectly fine being plopped right in the helicopter, but Bug preferred for me to hold him. Even B thought it was pretty cool as he'd never been near a helicopter before. He was impressed that my first flight was in a helicopter :)

In the jet, Bug was a little more cautious whereas Peanut jumped right in and tried to push buttons, the first one he tried was the one to start the engines! Can you blame him? It is bright red.
I think he's a little overwhelmed.

After the jet, we went back into the hangar and let the Bambinos run around - best idea ever!

 They had so much fun running and climbing and riding that we didn't even end up going to the Museum of Flight, we thought they'd be too tired.
Who am I kidding? We all had fun sitting and playing on things.

 It brings me back to when I was a kid and would go to work with my dad on the weekends.
Afterwards, my Dad took us out to eat at the place called Randy's which is filled with model airplanes and airplane memorabilia - they even have a spy camera from WWII. The whole time, Bug kept saying. "Ay-pee."

When we got home we bathed them and put them to bed at 6:45! They were exhausted.

How was your weekend? Do anything fun?

  3. Way to turn an unfortunate event (misplacing tix) into a fun day. Looks like they had a blast! I can't believe your first flight was in a helicopter! I've never been near one . . . they kinda scare me!
