Atomic Luau

Today was the "Atomic Luau" on base. It is a chance for all the troops to get together for a little fun, bring the families along, and most importantly not have to work. Last year the event really sucked. It was too hot, the line for food was too long and the kids were miserable. This year, they did it right. The line for food was still too long, but we never eat there anyway.





There were plenty of drinks for everyone. Unlimited soda, beer and water. There was also a lot of different things for the kids to do.



A jump castle!

Water slide!

A big thank you also goes out to 38 Special. They were playing at the Missouri State Fair this weekend and took some time out of their schedule to come play a couple of songs at our Luau this year. Thanks guys. It means a lot to know that you support the troops.
Overall it was a really fun day. Thanks to all those who helped organize it.

I bet if there had been water running down the inflatable slide I recently went down, I might still have enough elbow skin to not frighten small children walking by on the street.
