Preparing to Travel

We are getting ready to leave on our first big road trip in the RV. We are heading to OshKosh, WI on Tuesday morning. We will be there for 5 days. We are really looking forward to getting away and all riding in the RV together. I loved it when we were kids!

What's in OshKosh you're asking? Well, we are headed there for the GINORMOUS airplane and helicopter fly in. I have never been before, but for the whole week people fly in their airplanes and helicopters and hang out. There will be air shows, static displays, a museum, a kids tent, movies, and nightly entertainment.

We went to the library last week and Nico checked out about 10 books on helicopter and airplanes (not that we already have several at home, but you can never have too many!). He actually sat down and read a whole book (YES!). He is studying up on his identifaction of the planes and helies. He already knows quite a few. He amazes me! I am so proud of everything he does.

Luca is showing great interest in planes and helicopters too. Everytime he sees one in the sky he says, "Daddy", because Daddy flies one at work (and home). He doesn't yet say airplane or helicopter, but instead says, "brrrrmmm" (well whatever sound they make as they fly through the air). Nico and Luca sat for an hour last week lining up all of Nico's airplane/heli toys and playing. It was awesome! Luca will be in awe at the show I am sure and come back with toys of his own. Nico has his little backpack ready to carry his new things in. We are on a mission to find a wallet with a helicopter on it.

We hope to get some spectacular photos to post and scrapbook.

I'll post more after we return from our trip.
