Cherry Point Air Show --May 2012


Ok, time for some blogger catch up!!

We rewarded the girls after finishing their April calendar for Homeschool w/ a trip to see the Blue Angels air show at Cherry Point.  It was a blast and we absolutely loved seeing the show.  We were privileged w/ a VIP parking pass from our tour guide from a previous field trip. We had a softball game that day, but made it just in time for the start of the show thanks to the parking pass!  I have always loved fighter jets and it was such a "rush" to see them soar by us at blazing speeds!!  So cool!  We learned that the Blue Angel planes can be ready for war w/in 24 hours if need be.  We enjoyed our day w/ the Friedleins and the Houghtons.  Thank you Friedleins for the wonderful meal even if we did go on a wild goose chase searching for the right El Cerro! ;-)
Boy, were they loud!

They wer so close to us! It was crazy!


Whoa Budy!


Here they come again!
It's so amazing how close they are to each other!

Unbelievable!!

It was a hot day, so we were thankful for the somewhat cloud cover!

Loved all the formations!

Wowzers!







We were so excited to go inside a plane like Mr. Jim flies!  That thing is a beast!  The girls loved seeing inside the cockpit and it was pretty cool getting a personal tour from him.  It even has a potty!!!
