Isaiah finally conquers the humongous pants!
Of course, trying on the gas masks is a must.
Miriam with her 'gear harness' on backwards...or maybe upside down, but she didn't care she just loved wearing it!
With all these boys around the atmosphere is getting a little toxic.
Isaiah fully 'decked out'
This chair is from Saddam Hussein's palace, confiscated during the Gulf War in 1991. I just found it interesting.
This was a big hit. The funny looking contraption on the left is an automated switchboard, using this the phone in the middle can call either phone on the right or the left. I used it to call one of the phones and told Isaiah to pick it up, he was duly impressed and got a big kick out of playing with it with his friend, Sam, for quite a while. It was cool to see the automated switchboard 'do it's thing' each time you made a call.
We certainly made the most of our time at this gem of a museum right in our backyard and we look forward to our next visit! I am very excited about the opportunity to bring the kids back to look at some of these things as we learn about them in school this year! They even have a little gift shop where they sell actual old grenades, how cool is that! (-=
