Trains and Planes
Today was a perfect day to be outside and learn about trains and planes.
We headed to our Airpark to first investigate an old steam engine.
The bell on top still works and it was wonderful to hear it ring.
But the real attraction for the day was a walk around the small plane
One our grandfathers owns an ultra light plane and he brought it
out for us to enjoy.
And we did by taking turns climbing in.
Even the grown ups were curious.
We had a good look at the instrument panel,
to compare it to ours at school.
Although we may have to create a stick for steering.
We`ll continue to play with trains too.
We finished the tour by watching grandpa Peter take off in his plane.
