Last bit of June

We went to the Pacific aviation museum with the cub scouts.  I hadn't been out there before, it was a good tour.  We started out in a flight simulator room, where the kids all had computers with flight joysticks and controls.  The instructor walked us all through how to takeoff and land, even on an aircraft carrier.  We toured through the museum of planes, and then into a hangar they use for restoration (pic on upper left).  A closeup of the hangar windows is on the upper right, hopefully it shows up int he small picture, but there are a lot of bullet holes in the windows - those are the original bullet holes from when that hangar was strafed during the attack on Pearl Harbor.  The kids got to climb into a couple of the planes, and met a survivor of the Pearl Harbor attack who still volunteers at the museum.  

The last bit of June, we went to the Polynesian Cultural center, they were running a June special for residents, so we went to enjoy the cheap entry fees...

Now we're well into July already and the kids go back to school Aug 1.  This summer is flying by!
