On Friday Lexie's Montessori class went on a field trip to the Museum of Flight which is just south of Seattle about 45 minutes from here. There where 3 private buses (not big yellow school buses much to Lexie's disappointment) of kids from Lexie's pre-school kids up to elementary, thier teachers and parents for the trip. I was one of those parents - lucky me! No really!!
After their hour on the bus, the kids jumped off and attached this poor astronaut. Luckily he was made of stone or he would have been when they were done with him.
Here's most of the kids from Lexie's class that came. What a cute bunch of kids.
As you can see they had lost interest - ha! I was afraid Lexie was going to raise her hand and ask if she could have another hand stamp. But noone asked and they were all just happy to get up and explore.
Here's one of the wonderful murals painted on the entrance of the Flight Zone. This is where we spent almost all of our time. It was lots of fun for all the kids.
One of the cool displays was a hot air balloon which they got to "operate" by filling it up with hot air.
Here's my little Hot Air Balloon Princess (you knew she'd find a way to be a princess!)
One of our favorites was the hand gliding display. It was fun to watch her try to figure out how to make it land on the target - which she never did.
This was the screen she was looking at as she was "gliding." I wanted to try this one.
Then she was off to fly a helicopter,
And Lexie walking on the moon with the help of this robot was a hoot!
