We made it to the NRA (National Rifle Association) Museum.
The boys were super excited.
What is more exciting to boys than guns?
Gage was a little unimpressed at first.
He took the first half an hour to find everyone in the museum to tell them that his Grandpa had way more guns than this museum. And his Grandpa had shot every animal in the world, except maybe an elephant.
He's not shy, and he's very proud of his Grandpa!
|McCall wasn't all that interested in this particular museum.|
But she was happy with her sippy cup, blankie and princess book!
|The boys were literally so enthralled that they had hands and noses pressed up against the glass!|
Next time I will be bringing Windex and paper towel.
Not sure the Gatling Gun exhibit will ever be the same.
|This was one of my favorites - the vampire gun, complete with wooden stake.|
|Didn't every child want one of these as a kid? |
The "Original Red Rider"
|The boys with John Wayne.|
They posed for the picture, then asked me,
"Who is John Wayne Mom?"
I was shocked and dismayed!
|I thought this might be a craft my Dad could get into.|
Art by shooting at things.
|After seeing her brothers getting their picture with the cowboy - McCall had to as well.|
I'm hoping this post will encourage my father and brothers to come visit.
This really was a very cool museum with guns from 1600 clear to present day.
And the life size statue of Charlton Heston isn't bad to look at either.
