up, up, and away

If you ever find yourself in Tucson, AZ, I highly recommend the Pima Air and Space Museum.  We visited while we were on vacation.  It has so much more than I imagined.

Building after building filled with awesome aircraft, historical memorabilia and amazing people there to tell you all about it.  It’s self guided in the building; however, there are eager teachers waiting for you to ask them questions.

It was in the middle of a heat wave when we went, so we opted out of the outside portion. That includes acres and acres of more military and special aircraft.  If you’ve ever survived summer in the desert you know why we stayed inside :)

I admit I was in history nerd heaven here.  The kids thought everything looked cool and interesting.  Nick and I really enjoyed the learning.  They had an aircraft there that was the same type that dive bombed in WWII. We heard all the details about a particular attack from a retired Air-force officer.

This place was a hit for all ages.  I can’t say enough about it.  If you ever get the chance, you simply must go see it.

We have dreams of traveling with our kids every school break they get. I have a dream of seeing all 50 states and 7 continents before I die.  Where do you like to escape to?  I would love to hear some of your favorite sites to visit in the comments.

Have a beautiful Monday friends!
