We packed up our kids and went to the airshow Saturday on JBER. It was so much fun! I was just so happy to have Steve home on a Saturday that I couldn't have cared what we were doing as long as we were together.
The line to park was looonnnggg. It took an hour and fifteen minutes to get from the gate to our parking spot (a distance that would normally take 10 minutes max). Luckily we could still watch the opening ceremony from the truck, and we broke the law and let Riggs sit in my lap during the most exciting bit (we were stopped and the truck was even in park - don't call CPS).
When we finally parked and unloaded we were in a huge herd of humans and both Steve and I were a little tense until we could get away from the mob. The kids did great and there was no whining...until it was time to leave the model trains they had set up. At which point it was complete meltdown until he fell asleep just in time to miss the thunderbird demonstration. Oh well! With both kids sleeping Steve and I were free to watch the show without any distractions and we cuddled like when we were first dating while we watched. It was perfect.

It was our first outing together with both kids other than a quick trip to the store or to church and it just felt right...despite the extra work. It was such a nice day and I'm so glad we went.
Also maybe my favorite part was running into a blog follower who recently moved up here from Texas. I was so glad she came up and said hello, it's so fun to meet new people through my little blog space :)
