We love our country!

This is Weston on our walk back to the car taking a little rest. I think he was feeling the vibrations on the ground when the very loud planes were flying over. It was so cute!
The boys found a puppy or "puppuh" like Weston calls it on our walk back. They stopped for a while and chased it around.
Weston loved walking around and following Ashton.
These are some of the "Blue Angels". They were amazing. There are 6 planes total, and these 2 were doing a cool trick.

"WOW"

We had such a fun weekend! I can honestly say that we are all exhausted from being in the sun and walking around so much. The Miramar Air show was here and we spent some time checking it out. The boys did so so great. They rode around in the stroller so well and we all enjoyed ourselves. This show was awesome to watch and it gave us a new appreciation for our country and those who serve for it. The show was at the M.C.A.S. Miramar (Marine Corp Air Station). It was amazing to see all of the airplanes, helicopters, hummers etc. up close. Walking through the big C-5 Galaxy was really a "wow" moment especially when Tommy made the comment when we were walking off of the plane "imagine walking out these doors and into war territory and desert". There were so many men and women in uniforms walking around and helping answer questions at the different displays. All weekend Ashton has been using anything as airplanes to fly around. Maybe we'll have to switch up his halloween costume and find a pilot one :)
