Since we have an avid airplane fanatic on our hands, the first place we went to on our trip to the east coast was the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, VA.
E loves climbing on balls. Everytime we go to go Target we have to spend a few minutes sitting and sliding off the balls outside the entrance.
This airplane simulator was cool. You got to see how the flaps, slats, elevators, and rudder move and change depending on which controls you manipulate.
Planes, planes, everywhere! Unfortunately we couldn't find an Airbus so I think another museum trip is on order!
Space shuttle! Also realized E is wearing like three different shades of contrasting neon. Hmm...fashion faux pas or cutting edge trend?
Loving the observation deck.
We only visited three sections - Ancient Egypt, Orkin Insect Zoo, and Dinosaurs.
Am I bigger than this turtle?
Loved the insect exhibitions.
Got to hold a caterpillar. Eeks!
Finally got to see what the cockpit of an Airbus looks like
Ready for take off.
Learning the different models of engines.
And that was the end of our tour of the museums in DC. So many more to check out next time!
