Wordless Wednesday: Air Show!

By Kate |

I attended my first Air Show last weekend. We got to see a lot of pilots – including the Thunderbirds – practice on Friday but it didn’t make the actual show any less exciting. I really didn’t know what to expect, but it was awesome and so impressive.

Preschool Boy was dressed the part in his flight suit with his dad’s patches.

I was surprised to find a lot of fun stuff for kids to do. He loved “flight school” that was actually me pushing him around in this little plane since his feet didn’t reach the pedals.

And I think this looks like it was traumatizing, but he loved it and did the giant blow up slide over and over again.

And, of course there were planes there. Here are the Thunderbirds!

I look forward to seeing your photos!

    That blowup slide photo is priceless. Better than those from the coasters at big amusement parks. I have been to air shows, but never knew about Flight School. You know you wil have to go back – again and again and again.

    I had to laugh at that one slide pic. He really does look a little scared for the ride down.

    How cute that he has his own flight suit! I’m hoping to take my son to an airshow this summer. He’s 3.5 and I think he’d think it’s pretty fun.
