Reagan Presidential Library, Simi Valley, CA (Mon.3/11)

The Library walked us through the journey from Reagan's boyhood, sports, radio, acting, to politics. The majority of the museum of course focused on his time as president: confronting communism in the cold war, being shot, and his many quotable speeches and lines.

Air Force One – decommissioned as recently as '01. It looked a bit dated inside, but certainly contained all the amenities.

The grounds outside were spectacular.

The biggest gun fighter against communism, Reagan was presented this chunk of the Berlin wall.

The find-the-eggs game kept the boys entertained, though I know they learned a lot along the way. There were free jelly beans (of course, Reagan's favorite treat) at the end for the boys completing the egg hunt.
