I love this museum … I think it’s one of my favorite things to do in DC. I’m always happy that Ezra gets as much enjoyment out of it as I do (and I think Zoe likes it too.) I’m always surprised however that what E likes the most are the colossal plane engines and motors. Who knew that his 6 year old boy questions would already baffle me? Like ‘how does this engine work’ or ‘how exactly does a rocket thrust get a rocket into the air better than propellers?’ – I already feel like I can’t accurately answer him without reading all the museum signs patiently first. (Ezra is not as patient and wonders why I don’t already know this by heart.) What’s crazy is that days after our trip to Air and Space he woke in the morning and came to my bed, telling me he had the ‘best dream ever’. I expected to hear about blue skies and romps on a beach – but instead he told me he dreamed that he and his cousin Solomon built a huge motor together, while his cousin Eve built a pink motor. I have no idea what kind of engine he dreamt of – but it’s amazing to me that it put such a smile on his face for the whole day.
