One of the planes at this museum is a fighter jet that has the ejection seat out and on the floor so guests can sit in it and see what it feels like. Of course all three boys wanted a turn in the seat. Don't they look cute? Maybe we have three future aviators in the family!
(Aaron looks to happy to be about to eject for 10,000 feet... But the way he is gripping onto the sides for dear life gives him away!)
(Andrew has no idea what the big deal is about, but he's really happy to be doing what his big brothers are doing.)
Or maybe an aviation mechanic.

After the museum, we went for dinner then back to our house for presents and cupcakes. Aaron really wanted a huge, 1,200 piece Lego set that was a ridiculous amount of money, so we combined our gift with two of his grandparent's gifts to get it for him. I've never seen a kid happier! But, of course I forgot to take a picture. He used the leftover birthday money he had to order Lego Bricklayer magazine, which comes with a small Lego set mailed to your house six times a year. He got the first one last week and was thrilled! Of course, I don't have a picture of that either. :)
After presents came cake. Here's the birthday boy with his cupcake and candle.
Happy belated birthday to Aaron! I couldn't be happier that he is my son.
