Plane Museum

In first or second grade, my friend Michael B. had his birthday party at a small local airplane museum. As a kid I really loved vintage planes, airshows, and airplane hangar (I still do) so walking around the museum was amazing for me. I was a small kid, so I remember everything as being way bigger than it actually is. This is what the museum felt like to me.

I also remember it was REALLY cold outside because it was mid January. There was a patch of ice outside that everyone kept slipping on, lol. Also, the Runway Cafe had the best chicken fingers ever!

On a Horse.

Alright y’all, it’s Throwback Thursday time.

When I was little, I had a white Fisher Price rocking horse and it was my FAVORITE. I would spend hours rocking back and forth on it. The thing was that I wouldn’t just rock back and forth normally, I would rock allll the way to the front and alllll the way to the back, just short of tipping over. My mom would tell me, “Allee… you better stop. One day you’ll tip over…” But I never stopped and I never tipped over either because I obviously honed my equestrian skills after all those hours of rocking.

The Queen of Lunch

Everyone knows that Maddie has THE best packed lunch in the tri-state area.

Everyday at 12:00 pm on the dot, and not one minute earlier, her classmates gather around her to watch the opening of her lunchbox, hoping that she’ll accept a trade for one of her delicious snacks.

Did any of you guys have a classmate with amazing lunches? I feel like I had great packed lunches growing up. My mom could work wonders with a thermos and an ice pack.
