I headed a bit begrudgingly to the air show with my boys. Why? I dunno. It was a hot summer day. I was grumpy from working too late the night before. And frankly, I did not feel like looking at stupid old air planes.

But my husband kept telling me how cool it was, having gone a few years back. And reminded me how much fun it would be to hang with the boys.

Why didn’t he go? Well, we divvied up who’s taking who where. He was planning to watch our daughter play in her soccer tournament.

You can’t be two places at once.

So, off they went to the soccer tournament. And off we went, to the air show. I have to admit, when we stepped onto the air field, my boys and I, the rush of excitement hit me instantly.

It was a total airplane party! Shave ice! Old bomber planes! Free hats and water bottles! Tanks! Music! Air force recruiting! Patriots Jet Team! Looping planes!

My attitude also did a 180.

I can’t believe I was dragging my feet. Sign me up for 2014!┬áThat day will go down in our memories as a total highlight of summer. I’m glad I was part of it.
