our next door neighbors invited us to go see some military stuff at a jrotc drill competition. they had helicopters and tanks and trucks the kids (and adults) could get in.
now, i'm not a particular fan of the military but i could definitely see how all of this stuff is attractive to little (and big) kids. i was pretty interested in it all too.
ian enjoyed playing around in the tanks and pretending to drive a real humvee. at the end of the afternoon we watched the helicopters take off, which is quite loud but pretty amazing.
