You Were Born To FLY – SUN ‘n FUN

This week’s 🎉FRIDAY ADVENTURE🎉 was to the SUN ‘n FUN Aerospace Expo. Who wants to go shopping for a jet? We’re all itching to travel again, and this is a great place to do a little window shopping…although we may not all be able to fly by private jet 🙂

Evan’s dad, Eugene, has been a longtime volunteer with the expo and does a great job parking and organizing all of the vintage airplanes that come in – almost 5,000 planes will be on display during the event!

The Lakeland airport becomes the busiest airport in the world with over 14,000 operations surrounding the event. That’s a lot of traffic!

One of our favorite planes was the Fire Boss. This “amphibious scooper air tanker” can scoop 800 gallons of water in 15 seconds and only needs about a one mile stretch of water.

And who doesn’t love a huge bunch of inflatable games?! Elliott made many trips up this gigantic space shuttle slide. We thought we were past the point of needing to take extra clothes everywhere with us, but we were wrong…you always need extra clothes with a 6 year old 🙂

Lemonade, hotdogs, and lots of great people! SUN ‘n FUN is the second largest airshow in the world and attracts about 200,000 guests, volunteers, exhibitors, and performers. The Blue Angels are a must-see!
