I'm all for the kind of fun that drains your body but not your wallet. Let's face, nowadays it's very hard to find that isn't it? Even if you happen upon a great place to visit, chances are you're driving there and just the gas alone will kill you.
But I found that if I just look around the area I live, there's tons of things to do within walking distance....and for free. Yes I know, the heat is a killer but today we found ourselves in an uncommonly cloudy, breezy and not hot day. Saying that as I type this in Arizona is bound to raise some eyebrows, maybe ya'll think I lost my mind or I'm pulling your leg. No, really, I'm being truthful.
Curt had weekend duty, if you're military you know all about those, the guys get stuck going in to work on saturday and sunday at least once a month. If they're lucky and it's just something simple, they get to be home after lunch, but there's been those weekends when a Jet was broken and had to fly the next week and they ended up at work saturday and sunday for 12 to 13 hours.
And I realize I just completely went off subject LOL Anyway, let's backtrack...so Curt is on weekend duty today, he was home after lunch but he is still on standby and has to stay near a phone. So I grabbed the kids and went across the base, to the Aircraft Park, it's one of those places that the kids just love going and I for one enjoy looking at the aircraft up close and personal.
They never tire of touching Palm Trees, it's like their favorite thing to do
Medal of Honor Memorial for World War I and World War II
Deep in concentration as they read the dedication on this rock
So next time your kids tell you that they're bored and you want to do something
