We're heading out to our first Airshow this weekend & I'm SUPER excited! While some people can just walk out the door & be like, "Just woke up, I'm ready to go," with kids in tow, it's best to be a bit more prepared.
I've actually never been to the Wings Over Houston Airshow before but I do know one thing....it's gonna be hot! Actually, there's supposed to be a front pushing through this week, so fingers crossed that the forecast stays as scheduled, which is to be chilly in the morning & top out at just under 80°! :-)
From my understanding, there will be lots of traffic, long lines, lots of crowds & lots of noise...so think Disney World but with no rides. ;-) Oooh, maybe I can finagle my way onto a ride in one of the Blue Angels! (hey, a girl can dream!)
So, besides the patience, here's my list of things we'll be bringing with us to make this an easy breezy afternoon!
ear muffs &/or ear plugs - It's gonna be loud with the jets engines & the show explosions & I don't want to hear it...from my kids!
wagon - Bo & I aren't pack mules, so we prefer a little rolling box on 4 wheels to tote around the kids & stuff in. :-)
folding chairs - We have general admission tickets which means there's no reserved seating.
hats & sunglasses - It's in Houston. The sun will be shining. And it'll be hot.
sunscreen - Still in Houston. I'm not a doctor but I heard one time that the sun can burn ya. Wear sunscreen.
spray bottle fans - Did I mention we're taking the kids? To an outdoor event? In Houston? With no shade? With the kids? Must.have.something.to.keep.them.cool!
cash - There will be lots of vendors selling food & merchandise. And we're not ones to NOT buy souvenirs! (I wonder if I'll be able to find an ornament?!)
water & snacks - The FAQ section of the airshow site says we can bring stuff in as long as it's not in a cooler & has to be in a clear bag. I'm sure I'll bring some goldfish or something but we also like to spend money on concessions, so I probably won't be loaded down with snacks. :-)
Have you been to an Airshow before? What else am I missing? Anything not on my list that I need to bring? I can't wait to see all the planes & jets close up! I'll be back next week with how it all went! :-)
