I can’t believe another weekend has come and gone! We had a glorious weekend where we did absolutely nothing! Since we had such a quiet weekend, there really isn’t much to talk about. However, I never did get to share about last weekend and our trip to see all the airplanes at the Air Force Muesum.
This museum is one of Logan’s favorite places in the “whole wide world” (atleast for the moment). Shadrach told him we were going almost 2 weeks beforehand. That lead to Logan asking me constantly when we were going. So, I decided we would keep track of his sleeps because when you are three years old, that is how time is measured! I wrote out how many sleeps he had left on the chalk board in his room and we marked one off after every sleep.
At first, the countdown method wasn’t too exciting. There were just too many sleeps until the Muesum. Then as it got closer and there were about 5 or less it got more exciting. He was running out to me after naps and when he got up in the morning demanding that I cross off a sleep. So, as a side note, the countdown method was definietly worth trying again.
Last Saturday we got up and headed down to the National Muesum of the United States Air Force in Dayton. Shadrach and I had taken Logan a little over a year ago and somehow he remembered going (I call him my little elephant because he doesn’t seem to forget anything!). He kept asking us to go again, so we planned it and asked my parents along this time.
This Museum is huge! I mean it’s more than you can get through in one day. The best part about it for us, is that it is free, which makes it my kind of place. It meant that if we only got through one section, that was okay. We could just come back to the museum another day. I don’t know about you, but when we pay to go see something there seems to be more pressure to see everything and enjoy it. Then, because of that extra pressure, we don’t seem to enjoy it as much. Kind of ironic huh?
One of the main things we wanted to see was the new wing they added earlier this year; the Presidential and Astronaut wing. They added four or five Air Force One planes which we got to walk through. That was Logan’s favorite part! Also, the entire place is filled with nothing but airplanes which is a boy’s dream come true. 🙂
We took our time and only made it through a small portion of the museum. That means on our next rainy day or on a cold winter day we can visit again. I love making these memories with our little guy. I also love that my parents get to be a part of them too.
What is your favorite way to make memories with your little one?
