We taught Henry a new phrase last night....."Playing hookie" Just hearing him say it makes you laugh.
We told him that he and Daddy were playing hookie today and going to see the Space Shuttles. The kid smiled from ear to ear when we told him that it meant he didn't have to go to school. Then we told him he was going to have O'Donalds for breakfast, again smiles from ear to ear.
So, this morning Charlie and Henry loaded into Daddy's car and headed out to see space shuttles. There first task was breakfast and that was accomplished.
Then, there second task was of course to see the Space Shuttle. This is just a picture of the Enterprise, the Discovery is not there yet. At one point the Enterprise and the Discovery will touch nose to nose
I guess they were given flags to wave for when the Discovery came down the runway. Check out H'e shirt. I found this a long time ago at Target. It's way too small for him but oh well, it was the perfect shirt for Space Shuttle Day.
Looks like Daddy needed to kill some time so Henry got lucky and got a new space shuttle to play with!
The Discovery coming down the run way from Dulles airport.
Henry with the Discovery in the background. I think this face says "Dad, can we go home so I can play with my Cars."
Here come some Astronauts!
What they have been waiting for.
What a fun day to play hookie, I'm so jealous!
