Cool (figuratively, that is)

Summer festivals, street fairs, outdoor concerts and other opportunities to spend hot days with big crowds are SO not my thing...

In all honesty, my kids are much more stoic about heat and hassle than I am.

But when you have a kid who is crazy about big, noisy flying machines, you are willing to do these things!

After I got over my initial griping, I had to admit the air show was actually pretty cool!

Can you spot the teeny tiny parachuter? He's the little white dot next to the sun.

There he is!

The aerobatics were amazing! And no, this photo is not upside-down!

Here is the broken wing formation.

What's that whisper-quiet wafer headed this way?

Just a B-2 Stealth Bomber. We didn't hear a thing until it was nearly on top of us!

There was even a WWII battle reenactment, complete with "bombs."

(That's not a WWII plane in the foreground, as you can see!)

The kids loved the show, and we stopped for ice cream on the way home,
which helped to cool off Mom's cranky temper!

Big crowds and hot weather are NOT my thing, either! It does look like a very neat event to watch...and ice cream does go a long way towards making things better ;)
