We've been having lots of gloomy rainy weather lately (which I love) but we did manage to get out this weekend for Ez's first soccer practice, which was thankfully indoors, and for a trip to the aviation museum. I took enough soccer pictures to make a full length feature flip book film, so I'll save that for its own post, but I will say that he absolutely loved it.
On Sunday there was a break in the rain so we jumped at the chance to get outdoors for a bit. We asked Ez if he wanted to see some airplanes and he grabbed his toy Skipper and jet (from Planes) and ran out the door yelling See airPLANES! On the way there we asked if he wanted to see jets and he stated several times: NO! I want to see biplanes! Ohhh! Ok then, mister aviation expert. Thankfully there were plenty of biplanes. The museum was right next to a tiny airport, and there was a platform to watch the planes take off and land. We literally couldn't drag Ez away from there. Every time a plane took off he'd get all tense and start jumping up and down and then he'd mimic it with his own planes. Eventually we had to bribe him off the platform with the promise of a new toy plane from the gift shop just so we could go get lunch. The rest of the day and all day yesterday he kept asking, "Go outside and watch planes?" So far I've told him that planes don't fly at night because they're sleeping, and they also don't fly in the rain because it's dangerous. I'm running out of excuses though. Next time we're gonna skip the museum and just go sit by the airport for free, since that's all Ez cares about anyway.
