Air Force Show

One of our little man's current obsessions is airplanes.  Somehow I'm not surprised since he has been quite the frequent flyer over the past year and a half.  We go back and forth to the airport so often that lately he thinks Ryan actually works at the airport....I mean every day when I say "Daddy is at work" James replies "airport." Oh well, whatever.  We decided to take advantage of living so close to an Air Force base and go to the air show this past weekend.  We had a GREAT time.  One of our best family days that we have had in a long time. James got SO excited when he saw all of those airplanes. I'm somewhat of a history nerd so I also enjoyed hearing about the various aircraft, and Ryan was thrilled that they sold cinnamon pecans (we get excited about the little things in life in our family). It had rained the day before which cooled things off and it was supposed to be around in the seventies.  Well when we got out of the car at the base it was freezing!!!  I searched through the car and got all sorts of random clothing for us to put on.   Poor Ryan had to wear one of my jackets.  Overall though it was a great day, and we will definitely be going again next year!  

They had all sorts of airplanes and helicopters that you could climb in.  

Ryan tried to get JT to wear the ear headphones, but he wouldn't keep them on for the pic 

That's us at the very top.  This was an airplane that is used to  re-fuel midair.  I totally felt like I was on the movie  Air Force One. :) 

I was trying to show how big this plane was.  Ryan and JT are tiny in this picture. 

Up close 

Already forgot what plane this was- should have done the blog sooner!

I wrapped James in a free t-shirt that I had won at one of the Mardi Gras parades, and it just happened to still be in my car.  Haha. 

Yikes- family portrait

Cannot believe our terrible sleeper did this 

Or this! 
 The funniest part of the day was that we got interviewed for the news broadcast.  We were laughing so hard about it.  Ryan had the idea for me to take a picture of the TV when it was on to document our family debut on television. :) 


  1. Looks like fun and something that Mason would love. I think it is hilarious y'all made the news! :)

    Glad y'all had a great family day!

  2. Laughing so hard about the news! At least Ryan took his (your) jacket off for the interview!

  3. Hey what a brilliant post I have come across and believe me I have been searching out for this similar kind of post for past a week and hardly came across this. Thank you very much and will look for more postings from you. air force mom shirt
