Seize The Skies

Last weekend we went to the annual air show. This year was very exciting. We had the Blue Angels in town! Matt's company was hosting a picnic and we tried to make it but traffic was so backed up around the airport that we turned around and went home. Luckily for us we live close to the airport and so we were able to watch some of the show from the strip mall near our place! Here are some of the pictures of the Blue Angels.

Unfortunately however, most of the cool tricks like loops and low passes were done on the other side of the buildings. So we didn't see a lot of the special Blue Angel show. Next year we'll know better! Matt and I both took our cameras to try to get some awesome shots of the flight action. I think a few came out ok. I like this one of Matt...all the action was behind the buildings and he was anxiously looking for where they might reappear for us! He really loves anything to do with flying!!!

Here is me with my sister who was still in town! It was a little chilly and raining just a bit, so we snuggled up in our picnic blanket that we keep in the car!

This was my first time seeing the Blue Angels and it was awesome!!! Not even the rain could bring down the experience! Next year will be even better, now knowing the absolute best place to park and watch!

Freedom cannot be bestowed; It must be achieved

Courtney's mom and sister were here for the Fourth of July. We had a wonderful time watching the fireworks from our balcony. We settled into our camp chairs wrapped up in a few blankets and watched the pyrotechnics.
I didn't get very many good pictures...but here are a few that turned out.

And here's one of my sister...she's so cute. I thought I got one of my mom but her eyes are closed, so I won't post it.
