Family Day at the Air Force Base


This last weekend we went to a family day at Chauncy's air force base in Layton, UT. They put us up in a hotel the night before and then Saturday morning we went to the activities. It was so much fun and the kids loved it. They had carnival games, the kids made rockets that they shot up into the air, there was 2 bounce houses there, and other fun boothes to look at.
After the activities we went the the museum on base. Reid was in heaven looking at all the jets, airplanes, and helicopters, a as well as my Dad. My dad was in the national guard and so he jumped out of air planes and helicopters. So as you can imagine he had to show us all the ones he jumped out of and the stories behind them. Reid's favorite one was the blackbird. He even got a small version so take home. He says nothing is as fast as it.
There were some pretend airplanes that the kids could play in and all kinds of helmets and outfits to try on.
Of course my dad had the most fun with the helmets.

I laughed out loud when I saw the photo of Reid in his helmet. What is it with our Dads and their funny helmet obsession. I think they will do just about anything to get a laugh.
