Reagan Library Recap - Finally

Okay so this recap is a long time coming, but better late then never right?

We decided that since it was Nana's birthday and Curtis and I have been together for almost 10 years and we've never been that it was a good day to visit the Ronald Reagan Library. We thought Colton would love Air Force One and maybe the Walt Disney Exhibit. (FYI, my parents live right next door to the Regan Library, like we can see the drive going up to the library from their house kind of close, let me tell you when they had his funeral my parents watch the fighter jets fly right over their house, they said it was the most amazing thing ever)

First stop was Air Force One of course

We weren't allowed to take any pictures inside, but we took one standing under the plane.

Colton is checking out the wheels.

Then we headed to the helicpoter, I'm pretty sure they frown on touching the helicopter...we're rebels like that, okay my dad's a rebel like that, I walked away pretending I don't know them, saying "who let's their kid touch that?!"

Reagan's motorcade limo...look how old that thing is!

He loved Jelly Beans, so Jelly Bean made a portrait of him using 10,000 Jelly Beans...

We had to walk through an exhibit to get to the Disney one, we found this guy. He looks like a natural doesn't he?

The Disney exhibit was really cool and gave some really cool facts, all of which we had to wiz past because of a certain 2 year old who we were with was constantly saying "boring!" Okay Colton, point taken.

Berlin Wall, crazy that the West side is full of flowers and pictures and the East side of the wall is absolutely blank.

A moment of silence for a great President.

By the time we were done, we were all starving so we hit up In and Out. It was a great afternoon and after we got home I think everyone in the house took a nap.

So if you're ever in the area, I would highly suggest it. They have memoriblia in the museum part (where we didn't get to go) from when he was an actor and things that he got from other leaders around the world. Really cool and the grounds and views are absolutely gorgeous!
