Vacation day 4: Reagan Library, Airforce One and LAX

EthanbombWe saw the Reagan Presidential Library (our 3rd POTUS library we have seen so far) and the Airforce One exhibit.  Two things stuck out–the plane was cool and not as fancy inside as you would think (no mahogany paneling), and in the Oval Office replica a note I remember seeing as a kid on the president’s desk saying “It CAN be done.”

Also, the Cold War stuff is history and my kids are learning about it.  Really, those days were scary compared to today’s security threats.  I loved these two pics I put up on this post:  Leninade drink, and my son exploding.

A much better day, with a drive down PCH to LAX where we are staying.  Seeing the Getty museum today.

For my mom and stalkers…picasa and facebook photos.

Any of you remember the Cold War?
