Guess who came to visit our town today????





We found out earlier in the week that President George Bush was coming to Joplin to speak at the local college. My husband, Abigale and I went to the airport to see Airforce One land. It was such a great experience. When he got off the plane he waved at all of us. After the motorcade left we decided that the other kids (who were in school) should see this. So we hurried to the school and checked them out. We then rushed back to the airport before The President arrived. The kids got to see the President get on the plane and then take off. It was such a neat experience for them and for us. Here are some pics.

That is great! So cool that the older kids got the chance to experience it.

I'm jealous. I'd love to see Air Force One in person. Each time it's in Des Moines, I want to head down there and watch it land and take off but it's always during WORK hours!!

When I woke up this morning and realized W was going to me in MO TODAY, I seriously contemplated sticking my Abigial in the car and driving out for the big event. I decided that 4 hours in the car with Ms. Cranky-pants (we're hitting the terrible twos a little early) was more than I could handle for a spur-of-the-moment trip. I'm glad to see that you were able to take advantage of the great opportunity.
