Father's Day


We had a full and fun Father's Day! After church, we drove up to the Quad Cities because there was an air show going on. Caleb is really into fighter jets right now, and has decided that that's what he wants to be when he grows up (a fighter jet pilot).
Weston has always loved planes too, and although we didn't want to spend the money to actually attend (esp. with 4 little guys who wouldn't last very long, and in the heat we've been having), we thought we'd try to see what we could see just driving around. Well, we found a great spot to park, and sit on the grass and see tons! The best was the Harrier, and then the amazing Blue Angels. It was seriously one of the coolest things I've ever seen. We were all in awe, and Caleb was thrilled beyond words.
We also visited a couple pet stores up there, pricing out guinea pigs, as we are going to get one for Caleb as a 'first pet' for his birthday. We drove home, ate pizza for dinner here, with some very worn out kids, and then went to a Drive-In movie to see "Up". The kids actually did great, even though the movie didn't end until 11PM, and the twins hadn't even napped all day.
It was a very eventful day, and we had a great time as a family. Weston commented that he couldn't have ordered up a much better Father's Day. :)
But would you believe I didn't have my camera with me? So here are a few cell phone pictures, so I could at least share something. Here's Ethan at the Drive-In.
