Oh my word...the Thunderbirds are SO amazing. They were practicing today for AF graduation on Wednesday, and their practice is basically a free air show. I went with my friend whose husband teaches at the Air Force Academy, and she took me some crazy back-way to the stadium (she is my new BFFFFFF!!!). We were planning to just watch it from the parking lot, but the kids ran up the steps to the stadium and discovered the gates were open, so we got to watch from inside! Because they're practicing for Wednesday, they fly right over the stadium. Needless to say, we had an awesome view today! I was pretty ecstatic.
It was very cloudy today, and I learned from another friend that they do a "low show" and a "high show". Today's clouds translated into a low show. I think it was still pretty spectacular.
They're incredibly LOUD when flying overhead, hence, the name Thunderbirds. Abbey had her ears covered much of the time!
Awesome, huh? I'm convinced we live in the coolest place on earth!
