Yippee!! It's Friday! This has seriously been the. longest. week. ever! So I am super excited to see the work week come to a close! Though I could use a little relaxation time, we have another fun weekend planned. We are heading to Salado tomorrow morning, mainly to blow our own glass pumpkins at a glass shop there. It is a fun little town with tons of cool shops and bed & breakfasts, so I'm looking forward to that. In the meantime, I need to get a few things done, and get our house and laundry put together so I won't have to worry about it on Sunday. Here's hoping I can get it all done! Anyway, let's get to some fun! Continuing on with our jam packed Dallas weekend of fun, today I'm sharing our visit to the Frontiers of Flight Museum at Dallas Lovefield.
This was stop number two on our weekend away in Dallas, and it was a good one! There are several flight/airplane museums in the Dallas area, and this was a our first to visit. I think it was a great one to see! I was impressed with the variety of flight exhibits they had from high school class made planes to military aircraft to hot air ballooning and on to space flight! Lots to see and learn! They didn't focus just on commercial flying or just on military, it was truly frontiers of all flying!
I enjoyed seeing the various flight suits from wars past, as well as flight attendant uniforms. It is amazing to see how much has changed. Speaking of change, there was even a case showing a plane's ashtray from the seventies. Huge change in flying there! I was also impressed by their children's play area. They have an indoor play area, as well as places for birthday parties! How fun would that be for a little boy's birthday! One of the party areas was even set up to look like an airplane hangar. Who wouldn't love that?
I do have to say one of my favorite bits of the museum was on the upper level. It wasn't a huge display, just a small case, but it focused on the early successful flights from Europe to New York. It was so cool to see original news clippings of such an important part of flying history! Can you imagine if man had never accomplished that? We'd still be Titanic-ing across the Atlantic--no thanks!
