My Blue Angels

Okay, boys and girls. This post is going to be short and sweet because we have had a long, full day and I have a little one who is bucking me on bedtime tonight. Today we went with my dad to the National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola. The museum has been there forever, but I have never taken the girls. I have heard about it, but never knew what it was about. Well, hello Dolly! They have over 150 restored airplanes inside this thing, and it is HUGE! As soon as you walk in the door, you are greeted by a full-size replica of the Wright brothers’ plane that they flew at Kitty Hawk. Very cool!
Of course, since the Pensacola Naval Air Station is home to the Blue Angels, they have tons of Blue Angels memorabilia. They have planes hanging from the ceiling in the exact pattern they fly in. You cannot imagine  how close together those planes fly! It’s a miracle that they don’t crash into each other. No kidding, they are only feet away from the next plane while they are flying at top speeds through the air.
Little Bit got in every aircraft there! I think she has a new profession on her horizon! She’s a big, big fan of the planes.
And now, I bid you goodnight. ‘Cause this mama is worn OUT!
