Davis Monthan – Pima Air Museum

May 18, 2009

We had a great time meandering around the planes at the Pima Air & Space Museum at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, AZ. The SW Aviator has this article (Preserving the Best of the Boneyard
story by Mark Swint, photos by Mark Swint and Mike Scott) about the planes.


Saguaro National Park

April 29, 2009

The Saguaro National Park outside of Tucson, AZ, is a majestic place to hike around. The tall – and very old – Sagauro cacti reach for the sky and you feel so very small – and young – in comparison! So many outdoor activities are available to do: hiking, biking, camping, birding, horseback riding, and wild flower seeking ( in the spring ). Grandpa Ron and I really enjoyed the park.


Children’s Museums

April 11, 2009

On a rainy day (and there are a lot of those in Portland, OR) Austin and his friends love to visit the Portland Children’s Museum. He even had his first birthday party there.

Last weekend in Monterey, CA, we discovered the My Museum where the kids were totally having fun.

As a kid, Austin’s Mommy enjoyed the Children’s Museum in San Jose, CA.

All of these children’s museums are just awesome places to explore! While on the internet I stumbled on the My Museum.com for the Children’s Museum of the Brazos Valley in Bryan, TX. It has some very interesting activities as well.

Co-worker Leslie says her grandson absolutely loves the Discovery Science Center in Santa Ana, CA. Check that one out, too!

Found a Told U So blog entry for the Children’s Museum in La Habra. That traveling exhibit of “Ring of Fire” (through June 14) looks fun, too! The blog has LOTS of ideas on it, as well!

The Tucson Children’s Museum has several fun exhibits. Here are some pointers.

At the Carson City, Nevada Children’s Museum there are lots of interesting programs going on as well as the on-going exhibits.
