    you surely are a good mother, I’m sure you often hear this, but nevertheless I want to say it. You embrace and encourage your son’s admiration to a hero that meant a lot for the American history. I’m from a different continent (Europe) but gosh, how I’d loved to find similar treasures for my (then) enthusiastic son who looved washing machines 🙂

    Thanks so much. I think I enjoyed the trip as much as he did! So, I’m assuming you made a lot of trips to the appliance store when your son was little, huh?!?! The things we do for our kids 🙂
