My parents are in town visiting from the east coast while Mike and I are on vacation. We have been taking them around town trying some of our local restaurants and playing with Cooper at our amazing parks.

My dad is a private pilot and flies his little plane as a hobby. Anywhere he visits, he likes to check out the small airports and could sit for hours watching the planes take-off and land. He found the Nampa Municipal Airport online and read some great reviews about The Tower Grill right off the runway, so we decided to try out their brunch. The food was amazing and the view was beautiful. My dad had a great time chatting with travelers about their flights and planes.

As we were leaving, we thought we would check out the Warhawk Air Museum which is in the same area. I had never been before and with my dad's love for flight and my husband's love for history, it sounded like the perfect afternoon adventure.

I was shocked with how much history was in this museum! It's a self-guided tour, so you can stroll through at your own pace. Actual, and still functional, war planes and personal memorabilia from the American experience of WWI, WWII, Vietnam and Korea. Even hand-written love letters between soldiers and their families! The Warhawk Air Museum is definitely a great place to take your kids to see history first-hand. Most of the items inside were donated by visitors over the years, too.

Here are some photos from our visit:
