Day 501 | Catch Up

It was a recovery day around here: laundry, cleaning up, grocery shopping, house tidying, etc. That type of day, however, does not lead to a very exciting blog post so as I'm playing catch up with everything else, I'll play catch up with the blog, too, and post a photo from yesterday's outing so you're up to speed with all our latest activities.

On our way to drop my parents off (sniff, sniff) at the Dulles airport, we made a quick visit to the National Air and Space Museum Udvar-Hazy Center. No, this isn't the ordinary Air and Space Museum that we visit frequently, this is the massive wide-open facility where you can see real planes and a real space shuttle (among lots of other things with wings). We rarely make the trip out to this fantastic attraction so the special excursion was enough to let Chase play hooky from school for the first time to make the trip with us. Full disclosure, we also were going to have a hard time getting back in time to pick him up from school. It was the right call once we saw the traffic we had to contend with on the way home.
