Air and Space Museum

On Friday Justin took a day off from work for a special family fun day. Playing into Alexander's love of all things "space," we ventured to DC to visit the Air and Space Museum. I'm embarrassed to admit, given our proximity to DC, that this was our first trip to any of the museums with him (although we have frequented the zoo), and the boys' first ride on the Metro. Everything went much smoother than even we expected. The boys both seemed to enjoy the Metro ride, Alexander pretending to drive the train, exclaiming that we were in "Geotown," and practically squealing with excitement every time we went into a tunnel. Jack was content to sit in his stroller and check out our seat neighbors. The museum was great, too, with lots of hands-on things for the kids to explore, Alexander's favorite food (McDonald's), and a treat of astronaut ice cream for the ride home. Alexander even got to touch a real moonrock (not quite like the ones Mommy made for his birthday party!). We will definitely be returning in the future to explore the exhibits more in depth.
