Fun Sunday Adventure!

Josh and I got a once in a life time opportunity to go to MacDill Air Force Base and tour a plane today!  My neighbor is an Air Force pilot and his job is to fly the top Generals of the military around in luxury jets!  How sweet is that?!?


Just before his flight this morning, he opened up the plane and gave us a private tour!  This plane is called the G5 – you may have heard P. Ditty rap about it before! This baby sells for $70 MILLION bucks!  I wasn’t exaggerating before when I said he flies in luxury!


It looks small from the outside, but it is fully equip with a private living room, kitchen, and 2 bathrooms.  I would LOVE to take an international flight in one of these!


We felt like kids again sitting in the cockpit!  I was amazed at the amount of buttons and screens that are in this plane.  I was tempted to push a few, but I didn’t want to mess anything up.



Josh is already talking about wanting to take flying lessons now!   Oh boy!

After the tour and driving around the rest of MacDill, we went to Datz Delicatessent for lunch.   This was our first time at this super-swanky deli in South Tampa. They make some of the best sandwiches, and have a great beer and wine selection.  I totally want to back again to check out the night scene.


I was exhausted after that exciting morning and afternoon!  I headed straight home for a little Sunday nap!  Ahh, I love the weekends! 7


  1. Oh! I have a gift certificate for Datz! How is it?!

    Looks like a fabulous day!

  2. That is so neat my BIL is in the Air Force. How do you like living in Tampa Hubs and I were thinking of moving there in a couple of years.

  3. oh that is so cool! looks like a lot of fun!

  4. I hear DATZ is great....even better at night!

  5. what a great little adventure! Thinking of you :) xxx

  6. How exciting! I'm glad you guys had a 'fun' Sunday!

  7. Josh should totally start flying so he can take us all over the place, I think that's a great idea! Also, I've heard nothing but outstanding things about Datz Deli, it's really big in the Tampa beer community. Believe me, I know.

  8. Lauren,

    When you get ready to hi-jack that jet and your pilot friend and head to Paris...count me in!

    HUGS and so happy you had a good day with friends!

  9. wow, that is awesome! what a great day. let me know if you head to Datz at night, we love it too!!!

  10. Wow, that looked so fun! I'm glad you had a great time.

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
