What a Day!

Can you guess where Carson is?

Now can you guess?

Here's a hint.....

It was freezing cold! (that's mid 50s in Texas)

They also had these there.

Give up? We went to the Fort Worth Air Show! Honestly I thought this would thrill the kids. My friend Hope works for the company that sponsors the show so she got us VIP passes. The kids were scared at first. Especially Carson! I carried him into this plane. But once he went in and timidly walked around he was an old pro and wanted to go on every plane:) Fear conquered!

This girl had lots of fun and went with the flow until....... well you'll see.

It was great. So many planes on the ground for the kids to see and explore inside. Carson kept asking me "Mommy these planes aren't going to take off are they?"

A pink helicopter or a "Girl Helicopter" as Carson called it.

Carso gravitated to the orange helicopter.

Kate enjoying our complimentary fajita lunch. Thanks Hopie!

Kate trying out her ear plugs. I picked these up at the entrance kind of as an after thought. I mean how loud could it be? Whoah Nelly! It was loud and Kate was terrified. She kept saying she wanted to go home. Let me just say she wasn't  foolin' it was incredibly loud. Of course we started out watching the F-18 jet fighters. Yikes! Maybe if we had started out with the bi-planes we would have been ok. Lesson learned. And the big huge gun range head phones every body had their kids in? 

A Definite must for next year!

But before all the drama  .....we got a good picture.  

My beautiful friend Hope who made this day possible for me and the kids. Seriously she is  constantly thinking about others and how she can make their lives better. I love her so much.  

Kate admiring her all access badge. It had her name on it. She thought she was big stuff.

I tried to get a good shot as we left. There were these 2 guys to the side saying "Say cheese burger and fries" not sure if they helped or hurt.

She was such a trooper today.

I told him that if he put his arm around her and took a picture we would go to the library. The library as a bribe?? That's not bad.

On our way home we swung by Hobby Lobby as they finally put their Halloween stuff on sale. We picked up these pumpkin lights. Awesome.

And just an extra creative picture. I'm throwing a baby shower for a co worker and I made her this Diaper cake. It has sparkly ribbon and the blankets are a pink jungle motif. Her nursery theme is centered around monkeys. And a J for Jordyn!


God has said, "Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you." So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper. I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" Hebrews 13:5-6
