In celebration of Independence Day yesterday, I filled an early morning trip request from my three youngsters and made a visit to the Army Heritage and Education Center.  What a great way to begin a day of celebration.  The three year old so enjoys the large military vehicles and proclaims he will one day operate them all.
The twins like the ability to freely roam (which generally does not happen in a public venue) while looking at all the sites and occasionally reading a marker or two.  It was a wonderful suggestion and being a patriotic mom, so glad I could add some fun and a very brief history lesson to a not so very normal day.
