We met a bunch of friends at the airport and had a little tailgating BBQ before the airshow started. The kids blew bubbles, played catch, rolled around on the picnic blankets, and pigged out on yummy food.
On both days of the airshow they had planes on display, and some of them you could go inside! It was fun talking to the owners of some of the planes. My hubby especially enjoyed it because he is a pilot himself.
"But Jilly...I thought your hubby was a doctor!?" He is, but when we first met he was in flight school. It wasn't until I was pregnant with the triplets that he started his pre-reqs for med school. A tale for another day, perhaps. ANYways...
It was so cool to see all the neat planes. Being at an airshow feels really patriotic for some reason. I don't know. Maybe it's the military planes, the freedom of flight... who knows? But, it does.
The kids really liked the Golden Knights Army parachuting team. Every time the jumpers came down the kids would run over to get a high-five from them. Ha!
The airshow was pretty sweet. Those planes did some amazing things!
I can't believe how close they would fly to each other! Not me, buddy!
While waiting between awesome plane tricks we played Uno and the kids ran around with their friends. They also had a lot of fun with the little foam airplanes someone was passing out to all the kids. We all had a great time!
What did you do for the Fourth? Have you ever been to an airshow?
