Part One: National Museum of the United States Air Force

Since the museum is so HUGE, we just took a short trip there last night to check out the lay of the land...

First up, an F-4 cockpit that people can actually climb in!

Check out all those controls!

There's Riah in the backseat

Then she got a turn in the front

Caleb is up first in the F-16

Happy girl at the controls!

"Ugh, Mom!"

Moriah and I flying together

Front view with Riah through the heads-up-display

Parts of the Berlin wall

The Apollo 15 command module

This picture doesn't do these ICBMs justice - they are six stories tall!

Looking down from the second level
(B-2 in the middle with SR-71 off to the right)

Keenan in the training module, landing the Space Shuttle

I successfully landed it on my third try after crashing a couple times

Even Caleb got to try!

We will definitely be going back - probably several times!

We were there! We girls did get bored after a while but the guys loved it.

That's pretty cool there. If you liked this, you will want to visit the Atlantis Facility at the KSC Visitor's Center. It's quite impressive. Has a LOT of hands-on things for kids to do. I saw the introductory movie twice (before you enter the actual facility) and cried both times. I think they offer military discounts. If Jeff is still working out there & meets you there, you can use his badge for 20% off on all the food and 10% in the gift shop.
