Field Trip: Airplane Museum!


In our city we have a museum after any young boys heart – the Airplane Museum, it is called Wings over the Rockies.  It is located in a hangar that used to be used on a military base here in Denver.  We didn’t tell the boys where we were going, but after a 20 minute drive, we turned the corner to see this:

The boys jaws dropped, their reactions were priceless!

After getting our tickets and browsing the gift shop we headed into the hangar.  WOW!  There are tons of different flying machines all around, on the ground and in the air!

So much to see, so many cool things!

The coolest thing for my boys was something that is not even real, lol.

It was a fun day, the boys ran around with so much excitement!

Of course we ended the field trip with Astronaut Ice Cream, yum (eww) and a Captains Hat for Oliver.

If you live in Denver, I recommend taking your kids, they will love it!
