History Buff Buddy

My wife was going to a baby shower a few Saturdays ago and I was looking for something to do during her absence. Why don't you take grandson P to the WW II Museum, she suggested. He'd love to go and nobody else will take him. So, third grandson P and I had a day of history. We started with the USS Tang experience, a full size interactive exhibit about the final mission of the "USS Tang". We then spent an hour or so at the Freedom Pavilion looking at the static displays. They have a B-17, "My Gal Sal", that was recovered from the Greenland ice cap and restored. We then went to the 4D movie "Beyond All Boundaries". As luck would have it, we got the last two spots on the tour of PT 305. They only allow 12 people in to the workshop at noon when the volunteers are at lunch. After that it was time for lunch followed by a visit to the European and Pacific exhibits. All in all, we had a full day of it.

Does that look like kid who was having a good time?
