And then my day got really interesting. First photo:
Why all the hoopla?
Yep. POTUS was here today and we were lucky enough to get to see his arrival. Our friend Brian is on an AF Presidential Advance team (or something like that) and worked this event, so was able to get us front row seats to see the President arrive. And arrive he did.
I found the whole thing fascinating. The pomp, the circumstance, all of it. Early in the week, I was kind of meh about the whole thing, but then after hearing more about it, I decided I was in. I didn't realize how interesting I would find all the details, like the suburban full of armed men.
We were in a pen with a few other friends and strangers, about this far away from the airplane.
And we didn't take the kids with us to the arrival because right after that, we got to go on a tour of Air Force One and we were unsure of how that would really play out. So while we were touring, Kristen brought all the kids. And then we got to do this:
Seriously cool experience. And good luck to my husband and kids in making future Mother's Days more interesting.
