Hill Air Force Base Museum

Have you ever checked out the museum at Hill Air Force Base? Did you know it is free? And that they have all kinds of helicopters, planes, and other equipment as well as uniforms on display? And it is FREE. (If you haven't noticed, I like free fun things...especially if they are educational too.)

Alfredo and I have been planning to take the girls to the museum for awhile. He actually took Michelle and Ella when Michelle was about 2 1/2 and Ella was a baby...but we both figured it was time to go again since Gabby and I have never been and we're sure the other girls don't remember it.

It was a bit hot outside, but it was fun to see the cool equipment. I liked the displays inside even better and enjoyed reading a little about the history. (Only a little because with 3 kids, they are anxious to see the next thing pretty quickly.)

Look how big some of these planes are!!

Ella got tired (it had been a busy, fun, but tiring weekend and I think she was ready to be done) and had a tad bit of a meltdown so we only stayed about an hour or maybe an hour and a half. But it was worth the trip.
