Hello Titans Fans!
Sunday was full of adventures. First we went to visit members of the U.S. Air Force here in Alice Springs at the U.S. Air Force Detachment 421. We were shown some of their monitoring machines, and were taken off-roading in the Outback. We made it to the top of the Macdonald's Range!
Titans cheerleader Heather visits the Outback on Day 3 of her of her tour with Armed Forces Entertainment to support U.S. troops and related programs overseas.
Next we went to the Joint Defense Facility Pine Gap to visit the servicemen and women. We had lunch in their cafeteria and passed out some of our posters!
Our last thing on today was a cheer and football clinic! The NFL cheerleaders taught the servicemen and women's daughters a few of our dances we perform on the sidelines during games, while the fathers worked with their sons. After our clinic some of the older kids and adults played a quick game of flag football!
We woke up down here around 6:30 a.m. (Monday) to get ready for the Super Bowl. We headed over to the local cinema to watch the game with the military families. Kickoff was at 9 a.m. down here for us!
After the game we had some free time back at the hotel. Most of us took advantage of the pool!
Tonight we were able to go to the Kangaroo Sanctuary. This place was breathtaking. The owner rescues baby kangaroos and cares for them as if they were his own kids. Once the kangaroos are old enough, he releases them into his back yard, which is miles and miles long and wide. He creates a safe natural habitat for the Kangaroos.
We wrapped up the night with a group dinner and we are now headed to bed. Tomorrow (Tuesday) we are flying back to Sydney. We will have one more night there, and then we are flying back to the states on Wednesday!
