The Richard Nixon Presidential Library

We took the kids to the Richard Nixon Presidential Library for a field trip this week. The library is in Northern Orange County, in the city of Yorba Linda. That's about 30 minutes from where we live. What a great time we had browsing the many interactive displays that they had.

One of the most awesome things we saw was a piece (rather large) of the Berlin Wall. David is standing beside it in the pictures I have uploaded. Amazing piece of history! We also got to see Marine One, the helicopter that was used for Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, and Ford. There were displays on the Space program, and the famous China visit that the Nixon's made.

I really found that this trip was highly educational not only for the kids, but for me and Dave, as well. We will definitely be going back~ especially for those research projects that will be coming up in Spring!
