Two weeks ago Uncle Chris (Noah’s godfather) flew to DC to hang out with Noah for a long weekend. Noah was so excited for Chris’ airplane to land!
The next morning we took Chris to Gravelly Point to watch the airplanes take off and land at National Airport. We probably saw twenty planes land in the 45 or so minutes that we were there. They were so close!
We even saw a plane that had turboprops!
Here are two short videos of planes that we saw coming in for landing. As a quick reminder: If you’re reading this post in an email, you may need to open the blog webpage in order to view the video.

We played soccer while we waited for the next plane to fly overhead. Yep, it was another great day to be outside!
After lunch we went to the Smithsonian’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, VA – another one of our favorite local outing spots. Our first stop was the observation tower that gives a 360-degree bird’s-eye view of planes taking off and landing at nearby Dulles International Airport – what a great view!
