The Smithsonian is offering free tickets to lots of Museums on 9/21/19! Not just Smithsonian Museums! You can go here to see which Museums near you are participating!
From the Smithsonian’s website: “Museum Day is an annual celebration of boundless curiosity hosted by Smithsonian magazine. Participating museums and cultural institutions across the country provide free entry to anyone presenting a Museum Day ticket. The Museum Day ticket provides free admission for two people on Saturday, September 21, 2019”
I looked around at local museums participating and there’s some great ones in and around Wichita, KS! The Art Museum, The Museum of World Treasures, and The Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum are all participating. In fact, even the Cosmosphere in Hutchinson is a participating museum!
Sounds like a lot of fun to me! You can go here to find your local participating museums! I need to double check with the hubby to see if we can make it! Let me know in the comments below if you were able to take part!
My mother in law saved a little bit of everything. I know that cleaning her things out after her passing was a huge chore and took quite a while. But, oh! The treasures we found! One of my favorite things we found were baby clothes that belonged to my husband and his brother! The twins had already outgrown most of them by the time we went through those particular boxes, but they’re still so much fun to have.
Recently, my sister in law found racing suits that our husbands wore when they were little! We’re guessing they were about 2 years and 8 months old respectively in the pic, which was taken in 1989.
My Father-in-Law worked for Goodyear at the time, so the shoulders have Goodyear patches on them and of course the helmet in the original pic is a Goodyear helmet. One of the neatest things about that is now that my FIL is racing again, we have recently acquired Goodyear as a sponsor of the Lear Speed team! What an honor to have things come full circle!
Since Daddy’s suit is for an 8 or 9 month old, we borrowed his brother’s suit to take pics. We were able to grab a few at the Pueblo race with Papa Boyd’s race car! The boys were thrilled and did NOT want to take it back off!
I know the boys’ Grandma Lorri would have LOVED to see the boys in their uncle’s suit! I am thankful that she saved precious items like this that we can use to honor her memory.
My SIL went so far as to remake the original pic, and I just LOVE it! Especially K’s smile! He quite enjoys pretending to be his uncle!
Thanks for coming along to see a little bit of our family’s history today! You can check out the Lear Speed team on Facebook to learn more about our current racing season!
