Air and Space Travel

Took the kids to the Air and Space Museum today (here they are piloting a Cessna).

All in all, it was a 4 hour excursion, with an hour at the museum itself.

Initially, I was very focused on getting them to the destination, but as we moved, it became clear to me that, for these guys, "the journey really is the destination."

Sure, the actual museum was neat, but you know what, these guys LOVED the metro, the escalator, the elevator, watching people walk on the national Mall, sitting on the carousel horses, understanding how a parking garage works, looking at train tracks, meeting people behind them, and sitting on benches eating their snacks.

Their natural, unfiltered curiosity really gives some perspective on Life and the the way we approach it.
