Fly like an eagle

This past weekend an airport near our home hosted their annual Airshow.

When I say near our home I should have said on top of our home.
On Friday the airplanes were practicing and I didn't know it until they were right on top of us. They scared the kids and I to death!!
The Blue Angels are so loud!!
I grabbed my camera but didn't get any good shots worth posting.
On Sunday we loaded up a picnic and sat in the car and watched the show. It was so fun. Last year we actually went to the show, but I didn't want to damage any ones ears. It was best for us to just chill and watch from afar. Gary captured all the pics I posted. He was pretty much our photographer this past weekend. Thanks G-dawg :)

This jet was so fast and so cool and super LOUD! We saw it break the sound barrier. The waves were fluttering as the plane flew over.
I know...sounds weird, and hard to explain.
Anyway, it was fun and the kids had a great time. Hayden has been pointing into the sky since Sunday mumbling something.
I'm thinking it is his version of airplane!

My friend, Andie Smith (@AndieSmith on twitter), took a bunch of great photos of that show over the weekend! Wish I would have gone!

Here is a good close up on the ground:

Great pictures! We usually go to the air show near our family every year...especially when the Blue Angels are there! It's so neat...and yes, so LOUD! Sounds like you had lots of fun!
