front row seats at the air show

A few weekends ago we went down to San Diego

Thank you to my bff kate for letting us use your fantastic studio a block from the beach, it was heaven!

The hubs and I woke up at butt-crack-thirty am on friday (around 430am) to get in the car and head down to San Diego for the weekend.

We were in such a hurry to get down there asap because we were going the Miramar Air Show to see the one and only Blue Angels! {I used to see the Blue Angels as a kid, they are so freakin' cool!} This was going to be an extra funflippinfantastic adventure because we would be enjoying the show from the Media tent! our pastors daughters husbands brother is the PAO officer for MCAS Miramar so naturally we were in! {quite the connection huh? but Shelah is great fun and the 4 kids are adorable...}

After a fast drive to SD we arrived at Kate's pad, unpacked and begged and pleaded with my bro and sis to come and pick up khloe so we could get our little butts to the air show! {Scott has been wanting to go to the Air Show since he arrived in California in 2005 and this was the first time it actually worked out!}

A quick shower and change of clothes {again bff kate is the best, in my rush to pack thursday night i forgot like half of everything, and of course the bff had everything i needed!} and kenny and ash were there. this was the first time I got to see my sista with her prego belly, so cute!!

We made incredible time. Being that i lived almost half my life in San Diego i knew just the short cut to take to the base! Soon we were parked in the special parking lot for Media and after just a few minutes of standing around we were on the back of a golf cart whizzing by all the walking folks. We were dropped of just in front of the Media tent.

Our view was amazing, we could see the flight line and all that was going on. We also got to see all the news crews out there all day filming their live coverage. This air show was about a million times bigger than the air show we had up here at our bases. {we also had the Air Force Thunderbirds, and they just don't compare, sorry cousin danny and gina :)}

We walked around all the exhibits, won a few prizes and took it all in. At about 1130 am the sun came out a blazin, it was smokin hot! Thus I just HAD to buy this hat!

We enjoyed the day in the tent with food and drink and SHADE at our disposal. We were SO THRILLED to get to be so close to the action! The Blue Angels still amaze me, when they all fly in formation they are at most 18 inches apart from one another, can we say CRAZY!!

Simply put, they blow my mind! I keep asking Scott if he has any interest in becoming a pilot just so we can fly for the Blue Angels, no luck :( {one of the media spectators did inquire if my husband was flying one of the planes, hehe}
