That little clip was Ben doing a barrel roll in an F16. Uh, wow. Ben was rewarded a flight for being Airman of the Year at his guard unit. What a crazy cool experience for all of us! We got to stand right on the runway when he took off, and even narrowly escaped the jet wash blow over. So so so cool. Truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Oh and we are really proud of Ben for not puking or passing out, even while doing loop-de-loops, barrel rolls, and drop offs at 8.5 G's (that's a lot).

I am just always so proud of you guys. Ben for being an awesome man, husband, father. You for being so enormously talented, artistic, and the coolest mom and wife ever. Those are two lucky boys. (And I love how this ride is a reward since it would seriously be a punishment for me. Way too much action for this girl! Ha!)
