Life As We Know It

Two weekends ago was MWS Day here at Laughlin (Major Weapons Systems Day)! I was really excited about getting our own private viewing for the Laughlin folks of some really cool planes here on base. I had never seen most of these planes so it was really neat to see some of the aircrafts that flew in for the weekend up close and personal...

The B-1 (my personal favorite)

The A-10 (fighter jet)

Of course we also hit up the lake last weekend after checking out these cool planes! It was the first nice day of the year, so naturally we couldn't resist getting the boat out ;) It has been insanely hot here in Texas the past week including yesterday when it got up to a whopping 95 degrees. Luckily we were able to get out to the lake again yesterday with some friends and enjoy the heat on the water! 

Other than our fun filled weekends, life here in Del Rio is pretty much the same as usual. The hubs is still plugging away at his 12 hour days and I'm still taking care of school work. Mitchell has his big check-ride coming up this week, so any and all prayers for a great flight would be greatly appreciated!! I know he's going to rock it ;) In other news, I started a new job this past week. I will be working at the gym coffee shop. I'm really excited about working on base and getting to work with some of my favorite ladies as well! 

I hope everyone has had as wonderful a weekend as we did and I will update again soon!
