Up, Up, & Away - Week of Feb. 27th

Cameron is most fortunate to have some very special people in his life...two of them are 'Auntie' Jo and buddy Will. Cam's godmother and her son invited the Weatherford family to try out a new adventure with them.
They all met up at the Air Zoo in Kalamazoo. Founded in 1977, the Air Zoo has a rich history of honoring and celebrating air and space flight.

Cam and Will's tickets were free and even included a few rides too!
The planes were so big and the boys, as well as their parents, thoroughly enjoyed the different types of flight equipment.

There were four rides available for younger kids. Will convinced Cam to try the "bucket ride" although Cameron thought it went up a bit too high.

There was a kid-sized helicopter and plane the boys were able to sit in. Only the controls moved in these "rides."

Beyond the airplanes was the 'final frontier'- space exploration! Solar system models, interactive demonstrations and even the inside of space shuttle provided other areas to venture into.

The day was a big success as it proves challenging at times to find an activity that both kids and adults of all ages enjoy.

This crew definitely agreed the Air Zoo is 'out of this world!'
