What can I say?  Gavin was in absolute heaven here at Seattle's Museum of Flight.  We could have, or should I say Gavin and Curtis could have, stayed all day.  I enjoyed myself, but it was watching Gavin's reaction and excitement that was so fun for me.  It was a great day.  I'm still not sure how we convinced him to leave.

This was by far Gavin's favorite airplane there.  Can you guess why?  Because it was both a car and an airplane combined.  Yeah, what could be better.  Maybe if it had some train components too or something.  So needless to say we spent much of our day staring at the Aero-car and even more of our day trying to keep Gavin behind the barriers and out of it.

I don't think he had any intentions of leaving this baby's side all day.  He was in love.

For the first time in Gavin's life he stood in line for almost 20 minutes without complaining or whining once just so he could ride this 'flight simulator' for less than 2 minutes.  He was a very patient boy and almost burst when the girl in front of him wouldn't get out quickly.  Pure toddler boy heaven.

A future pilot I think.  Either that or a chef or a make-up artist.  It's a toss up at this point.

Curtis stole the show at the make your own paper airplane table.  Soon he had a line up of several kids wanting him to make them the same airplane.  But what's new.  It's the same scene that always takes place if there is paper, kids, and Curtis in the same room.  Gavin's lucky that his dad can make him one whenever he wants.

The Curtis P-40 Warhawk.  Not only is this Curtis' favorite plane of all time, but it is also what he was named after.  Bet you didn't know that?  Well, except you, Susan and Alan since you're the ones who named him.
