My First Air Show!

This Saturday, they called for rain.  Instead, it was 84 degrees and BEAUTIFUL.

We decided to go to the Cherry Point Air Show... OH SO FUN!! I didn't know what I was getting myself into but it was such a good date with my Marine.  He got to show off how much he knew about all the planes and Marine Corps things! Fun Fun!

Here are just some pictures from my adventure!
On our way!

He did not want to pose for this photo.  
I think what he said was "Hurry, hurry! they are blowing s*** up! I gotta go see this!" 
 Note the cloud of smoke to the right of his head.

Choppers flying through the smoke.

Me and my friend Brian.
I knew him before he was a Marine. This is the first time I saw him since he got back from Iraq!

Dave says "this is a Black Hawk"
I respond "Oh like the movie?" 
Dave shakes his head... "yes like the movie."

A child with an enormous weapon.


We got to go inside!!

Waiting for the Blue Angels to start performing.

PS. They were INCREDIBLE! I felt so lucky to get to see them!!

I have lots of video of them performing but I can't get it to upload. BUMMER.

But it was SUCH a FUN DAY at the AirShow!


  1. Too cool! I refer to movies like Black Hawk Down all the time - which is often accompanied by eye rolls and sighs. :)

  2. the nerd in me totally understands Dave's statement of "hurry they're blowing *it up!" because that's what I'd say :) and whoo hooo for seeing Brian!!!!!
