Smoky Mountain Air Show

We went to the Smoky Mountain Air Show on Saturday.  It was awesome to get to see the Blue Angels again!  I'm hoping one of my sons will be a Blue Angel so I can be a Blue Angel groupie ha ha!  The rest of the Air Show, well let's just say I had to try extra hard to have a good attitude.  It was a mile and a half walk each way in foot high grass over hills.  With a stroller.  Not easy.  Half hr  lines for the ports potty.  Half hour lines for water.  Sooo Sooo many people.  And they didn't have security checking bags.  The kids enjoyed it though.  They actually had great attitudes about it.  When we left, we were all hot and tired and stopped at Starbucks.  I don't think Starbucks has ever tasted so good!  

I also realized something ugly about myself.  I really don't like to be uncomfortable.  I don't like waiting in long lines.  I don't like huge crowds.  I don't like walking in mile high grass.  I don't like the sun beating down on me all day.  I don't like using Porta Johns.  And I don't like sitting in traffic.  I'm a little ashamed of the Princess attitude!  The Lord still had mercy on us, even with my internal moaning and groaning.  He kept us all safe and he sent others our way to help us with pushing strollers up the huge hill in that grass.  It's amazing how the Lord will use everyday circumstances and experiences to reveal things about ourselves in a way to help us grow in Him and be more like Him.

It is normal to be grumpy and upset about those things. It's called being human. No one likes porta potties, but they sure come in handy when you need them. And nobody likes long lines. The walk sounds like it was a challenge too.
