If a mirror comes crashing down in the middle of the night, and everyone is asleep, will anyone hear it?

Answer:  Yes, The Hubs.

But that doesn't mean we will realize that it was the mirror in the hall bathroom, until the following day. 
Instead, The Hubs will scour the house and then question his sanity.  Since NO ONE else heard the very loud crash associated with a large mirror falling off a wall onto a tile floor.
It felt good to message The Hubs a picture of the mirror and reaffirm that he has not yet lost his marbles.
Of course I had myself questioning my sanity just a week earlier.
I take the boys to the park after school on Fridays, while we wait for Izzy to finish up chorus.  It was a gorgeous day and we were really enjoying our time outside.  With the exception of this helicopter that kept hovering over us, and then it looked like it was landing and taking off from the Golf Course in our neighborhood.  And whomever was flying that helicopter was flying in circles and really low.
Then all of a sudden the helicopter tips to it's side and you can see something falling out of the helicopter.
Admittedly, this freaked me out.  I yelled for Alex to take cover, because it was right over us.
He looked at me as if I was overreacting a big.
Be honest, if it were you, and you were watching this little helicopter flying all over the place like the pilot was 5 years old and hopped up on Coke and Birthday Cake.  You would be concerned too, right?
Alex then pointed out that it was a guy and he had a parachute.
Helicopter landed again, then took off, and parachute dude jumped out again. 
At that point, it was time to pick up Izzy.  But I vowed to return to figure out what the heck was going on.
And we did.
Which we then discovered....
An Army Black Hawk!

And a Chinook!

And that crazy little helicopter with Parachute Dude.  I couldn't get a picture of them though, they never stood still long enough to.
For Veteran's Day, a local Reserve Unit showed up for a bit of a show!
The kids got to tour the Chinook.  And we got to watch as both the Black Hawk and Chinook took off. We also saw Parachute Dude jump out of the small helicopter a few more times as well.
The kids were super excited. 
And even better.  Ike is now old enough for Laser Tag!

He had so much fun.  He would play dead, when he got shot by another player.  He cracked me up.
