A These-Kids-Don't-Know-How-Lucky-They-Are Family Day

Last Saturday we went to a Family Day at "Daddy's work".
It was not your average company picnic.

This company picnic featured helicopters to explore:

And scramble all over, in, and around:

They ate hot dogs and junk food, played in the giant inflatable obstacle course,
and then went for Humvee rides.

As a group, all the kids did a little PT together, ran uphill and through the obstacle course, then set off in "tactical formation" to accomplish a mission. They got hot, dirty, tired, and didn't want the activities to end.

Most of us are familiar with the saying, "It's not over until the fat lady sings."
Well, for these kids, it's not over until the helicopters leave.
But eventually, leave they did.
So we did too.
