Making Memories With Your Family By Attending Air Shows

I am a big believer in making memories with your family by doing fun activities. This is true for the couple by themselves but especially true for children. It is a form of bonding. It gives kids life long memories to retreat to when times get tough. It enables them to escape and return to those happy familiar times and helps them take a little mental vacation. It is a critical part of their development.

In these tough economic times, it is imperative for families to find free or inexpensive entertainment. This is the beauty of going to air shows. They are free on military bases. They are very low cost elsewhere. I have never seen a ticket in excess of $8 per adult and the parking is free. Another savings is that most air shows allow you to bring in coolers loaded with food and drinks. This is one of the few venues that will allow this.

There are air shows all over the country. You can see them advertised in your local newspaper. You can also track them online. The kids will be amazed at all of the static displays of aircraft on the ground, They will be even more amazed at the aerial displays of aerobatics as pilots put the planes through their paces doing things that you don’t know was possible in an airplane.

Usually an air show is an all day experience and there are over about 25 acres so there is a ton of room for the kids to run and play and get totally exhausted by the end of the day. I predict that it will be so much fun that you make it an annual ritual with your family. Be sure to have everyone doused in suncreen.

Finally, it is worth the trip to make the pilgrimage to Oshkosh Wisconsin. It is the home of the Experimental Aircraft Assn. It is the second largest air show in the world. They have a great aircraft museum on site that is included in your ticket admission price.

    When my kids were young we attended band competitions and oddly enough, court hearings for entertainment. It is incredible to me that every step is so in synch. One misstep can ruin everything. It is one of the few events where the higher up your seat- the better the view!
    I had two boys and I wanted them to be very afraid of anything illegal. When they were out of school, we would catch the bus to the court house and watch criminal trials. They were astounded to see so many people go to jail every time. People that looked a lot like them. They are adults now, but they always mention these trips when they talk about the good ole days.
    Family traditions are very important. They were much easier to sustain with small children. I find it very difficult to establish traditions at this point in life. It is too difficult to bring people together and everyone has a different set of priorities. I met a motivational speaker and his wife who has been having dinner once a week with the same four couples for over thirty years. Only one has died; several times there were illnesses or crisis, but they remain faithful and continue to meet. What a wonderful tradition.
