The air show at Hill Air Force Base
We went up to see the air show Saturday. It was so much fun to see all the planes out there. There were so many people there !! The girls and Patrick first went into the KC135 big plane and they got to sit in the cockpit and they liked that. We then went around looking at all the planes until it was time for lunch. After lunch they had a few more planes up in the air. The girls loved the smaller planes that did loopdy loops and curly q's (that is what we called the tricks). It was then time for the main event - The thunderbirds. They are F-16 planes that they have painted to look like birds on the bottom of the plane. (Uncle Tyler flys the F-16's for the Air Force). They were amazing planes, but very loud. We brought ear protectors for both of the girls and that helped alot. There were six thunderbirds up in the sky at one time. They flew upside down, sideways and did tricks with eachother during the show. We left at that time and stopped to get Katelyn some planes to play with at home, she has not put them down since! Maybe she'll be a pilot !! Well it was a great day.
P.S. Stay tuned tomorrow for baby pictures tomorrow. We are going in to the hospital in the morning.
