Craft & Aircraft
This summer we have been hunting down some unique experiences and opportunities to do as a family, and also reeling back our time as a couple, so for some good date night ideas as well and lucky for us these two pop up in the same weekend!
For years I have heard (verbally and literally) of the Abbotsford Airshow, but I have yet to go! My husband new up going and said it was such a memorable part of his childhood and his summers, I couldn’t wait to take our boy. It helps with the fact that he is two and absolutely obsessed with airplanes, but I mean I am neither of those things and actually pretty interested to hear what the fuss all about!
Its gunna be a hot weekend so make sure you sunscreen up the kids, hats, and make sure to keep them (and yourselves hydrated! Also ear plugs or ear muffs are highly recommended because when those CF-18 hornets are soaring overhead, its not exactly quiet!
The Airshow runs August 11,12, and 13th (this coming weekend!)
