This weekend was so much fun. Aren't weekends such a blessing from the Lord? 2 days of rest, and freedom from work with your loved ones. I love our weekends when we have no traveling going on. We just get to be locals in our community and it really is such a joy.
This Saturday we were outside all day, and it was glorious! We went on campus for a Mississippi State sorority/fraternity event called Derby Days. All the sororities are given a theme and create a lipsync dance routine along the lines of their theme. This is all a big fundraiser but so much fun to watch. This year all the girls were given different Disney movie themes...Aladdin, Peter Pan, Jungle Book...they were adorable.
After this we went to Columbus, MS, which is about 30 minutes down the road, to the Columbus Air Force Base for their Air Show. It was my first time ever going to an air show and it was INCREDIBLE! We met up with some families from our church and enjoyed such a fun filled day in the sun seeing some incredible pilots fly their planes.
We were able to see planes that actually flew in the World Wars. Some planes are one of only 6 or 7 of their kind still in flying condition. It was mind blowing. Ben was just in heaven. He has fond memories of going to air shows with his family when he was younger, and has a deep desire to get his pilot's license one day. Needless to say he was right in his element.
We were also so privileged to get to see the Thunderbirds fly while we were out at the base. They were so incredibly talented. It was just a show stopping performance that left our ears ringing for quite sometime.
Overall, we had a wonderful weekend. It is so much fun to just get out in your community and enjoy local events. Whether that is an arts festival, tour of homes, or something like an Air Show, local events are always so much fun and a great way to support your city.
