Boeing Family Day

Saturday was Boeing Family Day. An event that happens every two years.  It is a wonderful event for the families.  There were roughly 11 thousand people this year.  We saw planes, and a rescue helicopter and the Coast Guard. The canine units were there too. Lon had a ton of fun with the dogs. Some we could pet and some we could not.
There was some confusion on if we could take pictures or not.  We chose to err on the side of caution and not even take the camera onto Boeing property.
The State museum was there too and we won free passes to go up and see the new Roman exhibit.  That will be fun!
The only big downside of family day was they tried food trucks for the food this year. On paper it sounded great!  However, in practice they were not prepared for almost 11 thousand hungry people. The Vietnamese truck had a tiny portable grill, that I am sure worked great for the lunch crowd, but not so much for the long lines on a hot day.   The lines were slow, so when people got to the food, the tended to take 4 or 5 samples. Bringing them to friends in other lines. That slowed the lines down too.  The trucks were great, but we were hot and hungry.  We had seen what we wanted to see at family day.
We went to CHOP. Charleston House of Pizza. They are getting to know us there.
We like the pizza there, and I can get a gyro.

Family day was fun, looking forward to seeing what they have year after next!
