Just kidding.

But we did visit the Museum of Flight this weekend.


There were crazy amounts of airplanes. 
Ever shape, size, make, and model you can imagine.


Or a model of the international space station.  Still pretty cool.

Flight simulator humor.

Probably my favorite part was the model flight tower, which overlooks an actual runway at Boeing Field.  We watched a Lear Jet land, and bunches of helicopters take off. 
This is a live depicition of actual flights in the air across the U.S.


What are the odds I'd run across a WWII era airplane with the name of the small town I was born in? 
So cool!


If you end up in the Seattle area, I highly recommend a visit.  You don't even have to be an aviation geek to enjoy yourself, cause I sure am not.  I hate flying.

{ what were you up to this weekend? }

    my dad wanted to send me to space school in Florida - but when he 'discovered' it i was already too old to want to do something like that .. i sorta wish he found out about it when i was younger - would be cool to say i went to space camp :o)

    That looks so cool! I should do that sometime! I'm sure I'll be in Seattle again sometime in the next 6 months. Maybe my little brothers will be with me. This would be perfect for them.
