This past weekend The Blue Angels made it back to one of their original home bases for the 2015 Jacksonville Air Show.
If you are from JAX then you know that the Blue Angels fly here every year, switching locations between NAS JAX and Jacksonville Beach. The show this year called for the Beaches and we were so excited to go out and see them perform over the ocean (in my opinion, it's the best way to see it)!
Charli has had this little Blue Angels stuffed airplane since she was a baby and she was beyond excited to finally see these bad boys in action!
We ran around like airplanes and played in the sand as we watched the Geico Skytypers (a squadron of six vintage World War II aircrafts) and Fat Albert (a United States Marine Corps C-130T Hercules) take the sky as we waited patiently for the main attraction.
The Blue Angels!!
As they took to the sky Charli squealed "Woohoo, Go NAVY!". She and Crew were both in awe and loved watching the planes fly over us!
I was mostly concerned about the noise from the jet engines being too loud for their little ears but thankfully it wasn't TOO bad. Crew of course wouldn't keep his earplugs in (why would he, he's 1...) but Charli wore hers the entire time. There were just a couple of times that the noise startled Crew and had him crying and scared but other than that we couldn't have asked for a more perfect day (except of course to have daddy here) with family and friends!
Thank you Blue Angels for a Spectacular Show!
