We went to the air show to watch the Blue Angels last weekend. I thought about my Dad a million times. Glad I had on sunglasses all day. It was such a struggle to me to enjoy that day because he should have been there with us. He WOULD have been there with us. He loves(ed) the Blue Angels and any and all aircraft. Last time we saw the Blue Angels in KC, I bought my Dad a T-shirt and surprised him with it when we came to Arkansas for a visit (this was when we lived in KC). Anyway...I saw the perfect t-shirt I would have bought for him this time. Devastating.
We were supposed to meet Jason's parents there, but we found out last minute they had a change of plans. So, we met up with our neighbors while we were there.
This was the first plane we saw. It felt like a punch in the gut thinking about how my Dad should be seeing this plane. He would have LOVED this day.
Yall will just have to forgive me... I'm just having such a hard time with this blog post... It just sucks picturing my Mom sitting at her computer looking at these pictures of airplanes and I KNOW exactly what she's thinking. :(
He should be HERE.
This is what got me through the day. Hanging on for dear life to my little boy. He made it possible for me to step one foot in front of the other and continue. From plane to plane, telling myself "Just do the next thing".
Kohen just could not believe his eyes. He loved every single minute.
Best Friends Kohen and Ashton. Best Friends Jason and Adam. :)
I wish I had a picture of Ashley and I. Unfortunately, she too lost her Dad, suddenly, at a young age. She was one of my best friends before, but after going through this with my Dad, I don't know what I would do without her. She knows. It's just that simple... She just knows. She knows by the look in my eye what kind of day I'm having. She knows what to say, when to say it and when to just back off. I feel I do the same for her.
Both of these boys are having the time of their life!
NOT my idea of father-son time!!!!! ;)
The Blue Angels
I bought Kohen some sunglasses while we were there because he couldn't look at the sky, it was so sunny.
I love my baby boy.
Here they go!
It was absolutely amazing.
Bitter sweet day.
On a side note...I've started grief counseling.
