The Air Show

Mother's Day weekend we went out to the air show at Barksdale Airforce Base. We went on Sunday so it was pretty overcast. Actually, as we were walking in from the parking lot it started to rain so we walked back to the car anticipating the whole thing being a wash. But the rain stopped so we decided to give it another go. I'm so glad we did b/c it was really a lot of fun.


Our little Suz is a huge Nascar fan! Crazy huh? She saw this car (I believe it was Dale Earnhardt's) and got so excited!

Her favorite racer is Jeff Gordon. She can tell you his number and what place he has come in the past several races. It really cracks me up. What can I say....the girl likes speed!


Sweet baby Jack was a serious crab all day! He hadn't gotten very good rest the night b/f and oooo-weeee was he somethin' else. I was very glad for him to get his nap! ;) Funny thing is, I thought he would really get a kick out of all the planes, but the loud noises scared him?! Silly kid. He warmed up to them after a while though.

Molly Beth had a good time. She's just so happy-go-lucky. As long as she has a dress (or skirt) on and can dance around and feel beautiful she's good to go!



This is the AWAC. It's a radar plane that monitors the surrounding air space and ground below. It's really neat. There was a long line to go inside.



It started raining again. Aaaahhh, making memories!



The rain stopped. And we continued to wait...



Finally!



This is your captain speaking....



No Jack!!! Don't touch the red button!!!!!!!



Suz giving a helicopter a test run.


Her passengers...





Trying on the gear. It was really heavy.


All suited up and ready to go.
It was a fun time. I didn't get any pictures of the actual air show, but it was very impressive...and very nerve racking....and loud too. But still very neat. It was such an overcast day that we felt good the whole time. However, it cleared up and started getting hot. I couldn't hang. So we left b/f the Blue Angels. Maybe next year. :) Speaking of next year, if you didn't make it this year you really should go. It's free, educational and the kids will love it! :)

We were there too, but did not come until later: missed the rain, but saw the Blue Angels. They were worth the wait! Glad you guys had fun too.

What a fun day! I think that it is so funny that Suz likes Nascar. Her Uncle Jay would get along great with her.
