Despite studying history to GCSE and learning a little Latin, history is not my strong point (too many deaths going on for my liking). The only date I can actually remember is 1066 (sorry hubby) and I do love trying to read the Latin inscriptions in churches. My husband on the other hand is really passionate about history that he loves surrounding himself with it. As our daughters grow up I feel it is important for them to immerse themselves in both of their parents passions and more.
So on Wednesday eldest was torn away from CBeebies and headed off on an adventure with her father and her granddad. Together they headed to RAF Museum Hendon where they delighted in seeing many aircraft and a rescue boat. Eldest had them well and truly entertained and as someone pointed out their hands full too.
Here are a few things eldest got up to:
· Looking out of an aircraft waving to her daddy
· Laying down on a projected map
· Appeared by the side of an American man’s lunch eyeing it up before having her own perfectly portioned child sized meal
· Helped a lady cone off an area
· Played with the toy aeroplanes
· Walked into a perspex door accidentally as she thought you could enter the aircraft and didn't realise you couldn't
· Looked down through a walk way on to the aircraft
Sadly it is not possible to see all the aircraft at present as many of them are being given a makeover in time for The RAF Centenary in 2018. So her granddad came away a little frustrated. Our daughter on the other hand was hungry again so a stop off at a huge supermarket on the way home was necessary.
Have you visited the RAF Museum in Hendon?
