Columbus Air Force Base Air Show

Thanks to our van needing to get taken to the nearest honda dealership because of a check engine light (glad it was just some recalled pistons misfiring so they fixed it for free!) we passed by a big sign for an Air Show at the local Air Force base.

We put it on our calendars and went to check it out after the 1st Saturday session of General Conference. We had a ton of fun and really enjoyed that our kids were old enough to appreciate and be entertained by it. It probably helped that Chris was as excited as a little kid, enthralled with each trick and amazed by the talent and mind-blowing possibilities of the planes.  We saw the defending world champion trick pilot and the famous Thunderbirds with their f-16 fight jets. (Is that right Chris? I call upon you to jump on this post to give more details...)


So fun. Even though we had to walk over 2 miles to get from our parked car to the entrance if the show...that's well over 4 miles round trip.

AWESOME EXPERIENCE! Especially fun to hear excitement in Chris's voice as he told about it :-)

Ok, I seriously cannot control the jealousy right now. How awesome is that?! I don't know if I am more jealous for myself, or for my boys who would have died of excitement for such an event.
