Skyfest

Skyfest is back!

We wanted to go a few years ago but somehow just didn't get out there.  I can't even remember why at this point.  We really didn't think we were going to make it out there again this year with Skyfest happening the same weekend as Preston's soccer tournament.  But the stars aligned and all of his games on Saturday were over by noon!  Score! 

So after Preston's last game we grabbed lunch and headed to the base.  Where we waited and waited and waited.  Until we finally made our way to where we were parking and unloaded everything to head in for the fun!

There were so many things to see!  We seriously could have spent hours there.  Sadly we only had a couple of hours.  Really we were just trying to get there in time for the main event, the Thunderbirds!

But first we explored.  And found an aurora bomber.


Preston and Brad found an osprey helicopter that they were both pretty excited about especially when we were able to tour it!


We wandered around for a little bit.  Looking at things.  Chasing Preston.  Following Olivia.  Until we met up with friends!


We weren't there for long before we found a spot to set up chairs and get ready for the big event.

Obviously Preston was very excited!


Me and my favorite littles!


The Thunderbirds!


I knew that Brad would be into it.  I wasn't sure how much Preston would be into it.  I figured at the very least he would love the beginning but might get bored after that.  He was hooked!  I even had to give him my sunglasses so that he could see them better with how bright it was outside! 


I was most surprised though by how much Olivia loved it.  She wasn't scared of how loud it was (I'm sure the ear plugs that very nice people near us gave her helped a lot with that!).  She would watch the places as they flew by and up into the air.  She seemed to love it!


The boys did need to get up and stretch a little during the show.  They had energy to burn.  Playing in two soccer games before didn't slow them down! 


My girl loving on her Daddy!


The show continued on!  Preston found his seat again and kept enjoying all of how awesome it was!


Poor baby sister got tired!  Busy day and all the sun!


The Thunderbirds were seriously so much fun to watch.  They did such an amazing job.  I can't even imagine how much work went into the show.  It was definitely worth all of the chaos and heading out there just to see them perform.

My favorite people!


Getting everyone to look, smile, and pay attention at the same time is getting harder and harder!


On our way out we detoured to let Preston explore and climb in and around a huey helicopter.  He loved it!


We cut it pretty close getting to the soccer game we were going to that night with all the traffic, but it was so worth it with how much fun we had at Skyfest.
