The first place we visit when in Washington DC is, of course, the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. This is a must due to my very nerdy men. My husband, a fifth grade teacher, loves science almost as much as he loves me and that’s a lot. Our 8 year old son, gifted, cute and truly a young scientist at heart wants to be a NASA engineer when he grows up. Last year he even got to meet a real NASA engineer, which of course, further fueled his desire to one day build a faster rocket than anything they have today! Watch out future American citizens, he just might do it.
These are only a few of the photos I took. I didn’t take near as many as I did the first time we went to the Air and Space Museum. Back in 2014, I think I took a photo of just about every exhibit. This year, not so much. I wanted to concentrate on what I was seeing. Of course, the coolest exhibit this year was the original model of the spaceship Star Trek Enterprise. Being a fan of the show, this was a must see.
