Offutt AFB Air Show 2014

DSCN2449We had a great day at the Offutt AFB air show today! It started early because Craig was working a vendor stand to help raise money for his unit, so we had to be there bright and early…around 0830. The gates weren’t open yet, so Craig went in while the kids and I waited in line until 0900. We stopped first to see the army displays (we see airplanes a lot more often). The kids LOVED all the attention they got from the soldiers (there was no one else there yet).

Addyline was even able to blow the horn on the great big one, it scared Wauryn to death so they decided they probably shouldn’t let anyone else do that….

After the army stop we saw a few airplanes, a high tech trailer with iPads and video games…to high tech for us…so we headed out to find the Star Wars gang. We found a few and later when Dad was on a break from making kettle corn, we found a few more. The kids LOVE Star Wars!

The day also included face painting and putting out fires at the “Planes: Fire and Rescue” both. And of course what outing can be complete without yummy food, including walking tacos, icecream, kettle corn (we of course had to eat some of the stuff daddy was making) and lemonade. Yummy!

After lunch the air acts started and eventually Uncle Clint, Aunt Mary, and the cousins joined us for a fun afternoon watching trick planes, parachuters, and of course the Blue Angels.
