Carolinas Aviation Museum

DSCN2419 DSCN2430 DSCN2427 DSCN2425We went to the Carolinas Aviation Museum today. We enjoyed it.  The kids had fun sitting in some of the planes and seeing them up close.  They were most interested in the Miracle on the Hudson plane and that whole story.  Hopefully that wont backfire the next time we fly!  After the museum we met J for lunch.   Fun adventures in Charlotte!


Fun stuff

We’ve been having fun! Ice skating birthday parties, writing notes, scooting home from school and watching the chickens grow. Even Mona has been enjoying himself. Just one more month the kids will be out of school for the summer!
