Back in the beginning of July, my brother finally got married! He and his now wife live just outside of Washington DC in Virginia. A few miles from their house is the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum out by Dulles Airport. We didn't have much free time while we were in Virginia to go exploring, so we made sure that this was the sight we got to see. And boy, what a sight!
Along with hundreds of amazing aircraft from all areas, the Smithsonian has a Blackbird, The Enola Gay & The Space Shuttle Discovery. Even though we're fully grown adults, we were running around like kids the entire morning.
This was easily the biggest highlight of our trip to Virginia and WDC. While we got to see some amazing sights during the rest of our trip, nothing fulfills our nerdy hearts like seeing a Shuttle in person. We're leaving for a weekend trip to NASA this weekend, something we do annually with friends. So we'll get to see even more amazing space craft this year.
