Foto Friday–Out the Window

PhotobucketToday’s theme was a little tricky for me to come up with, but after scrolling through my photos, I ended up with two that I can’t decide between.  I’ll let you pick your favorite for today.

We went to the National Air Force Museum near Dayton, OH a few weekends ago, and boy was that fun!  They have three HUGE hangers full of military planes that date back all the way to the Wright Brother’s first plane.  It’s a free museum, which makes it even more impressive. 

There are two cockpits that kids (or anyone) can sit in to see what it feels like to be a pilot.  Jack loved them both.   The F-4 cockpit made Jack look so little!  I got down on my hands and knees to take this picture, and I’m so glad I did.  I love how he’s peeping out of what would be a window if it was a complete cockpit. You should click on the picture to see it bigger.  This small image doesn’t do it justice.

So little!!

The following weekend we went to EnterTrainMent Junction near Cincinnati, OH which has the world’s largest indoor model train display.  It was not free, and perhaps a bit overpriced, but very impressive all the same.  The models were amazingly detailed.  You could stand there and look at one little scene for five minutes and still not see all the tiny little details.  That is, if you didn’t have a toddler pulling you to the toy train area. 

While looking at the detailed buildings and scenery, I noticed one building that was a jailhouse.  It had an inmate escaping through the window, and I thought that was the funniest thing.

See him?  He’s escaping “out the window.”

    I love the one of Jack. I don't think he is ready to take off just yet. ;)
