George W. Bush Presidential Library

A week ago when we were talking to the Grs about what they might like to do while they're in Dallas, my mother-in-law said she would be interested in seeing the new Presidential Library.  What a great idea!  This amazing museum and tribute to President Bush recently opened at the beginning of the month, so the Scout Master and I were excited to see it, too.

 Craig and his dad helping my mother-in-law with her audio's an iPod!  Coolest thing ever.  Everyone gets one as they walk into the museum along with a brand new set of earbuds.  I asked what they do with all the used earbuds and the guy at the help desk said they sterilize them and send them to local, underprivileged elementary schools.  
I LOVE technology!

The 9/11 tribute was the most difficult to walk through.  It was like being there all over again. But it was so beautifully done and the memorial wall was so moving.  Everyone cried through that entire exhibit.
Actual cross beams that were hit by one of the hijacked planes.  

We all loved spending the morning in this beautiful museum.  It filled all of us with patriotism and a great respect for the office of President of the United States.
