Our latest events

Well, it has been kinda quiet around here since Anne headed home. We both really enjoyed her being here and being able to experience all these beautiful things with us. Last weekend we did get out and about with SBFs Mindy and Paul. We went to the Arctic Thunder 2010 Air Show at Elmendorf/Richardson Military Base. This show brings in about 200,000 people on the weekend. It featured the Canadian Snowbirds Demonstration Squad and the Navy Blue Angels. They put on an awesome performance that made you wonder how many years of training must have gone into such mastery of the air. There was a very solemn moment when the Missing Man Formation was flown in honor of the 4 men who died in a cargo plane crash while preparing for this show. There was also a demonstration by a F-22 Raptor. This plane is a stealth fighter and it truly is death from above for any enemy. You never would know what hit you. Besides all the cool planes, they had many booths featuring anything from wildlife to T-shirts. There were plenty of food stands but we waited until the show was over to grab a bite to eat. We enjoyed dinner at Ernesto and Ricardo's Mexican Grill. Mindy and Paul ordered fajitas that could have fed all four of us! Huge! We had a really enjoyable day and would like to thank Mindy and Paul for inviting us along.
