An Air and Space Sunday – Washington DC

December 18, 2012

Family on the Road

I’ve said this many times that the best part about being a family on the road is meeting up with family and friends, old and new.

In DC we met up with Brent’s cousin, Christopher, who was an officer in the Navy. The boys loved hearing him explain our airplane engines work.

One of the our favorite things in the Air in Space Museum was the original Wright Flyer. We had seen the reproduction in at the Wright National Memorial in Kitty Hawk in North Carolina. The story of the Wright brothers is such a great example of what can be accomplished through teamwork and friendship.

I was fascinated by Amelia Earhart’s red plane, a Lockheed Vega 5B in which she set many records. So fearless!!!

Love and Laughter,
Jenn

I'm Jenn and I'm so happy you stopped by our little corner of the web. My favorite moments are cuddling with my boys, listening to the purrs of my cat, and sipping warm cups of tea. The smell of orange blossoms conjures up delightful memories of childhood even though I grew up in Indiana hundreds of miles from citrus groves. I love animals and when I'm stressed I dream of owning a goat farm. I love art, road trips, books, and food. Vintage clothes make me ridiculously happy. Red lipstick is my friend.

    That’s very cool! We visited the national air force museum when we visited Dayton, Ohio. Have you guys been? It was the biggest collection of all things aviation we have ever seen. The surprising part was that it was completely free!
