Flying High

This isn’t the most timely post, but better late than never, huh?  Thanks to the Mr.’s mom, we took in the Air Show in Rochester for the Mr.’s Birthday.  It was pretty fantastic.  And I’ll admit–I had my doubts.  I’ve never been one for going all ga-ga over planes.  But this was actually FUN.  Yeah–that’s right.  I capitalized it.  That means it was F-U-N.  They had planes doing all manner of crazy tricks . . .

Yeah–this one flew straight up until stalling out and then came straight down.  Gulp.

But there were also a ton of planes all over the airport that we could tour around . . .

Yeah–like I said.  LOTS of planes.  We walked straight through one . . .

. . . and right to the next one . . .

Of course, we got frequently distracted by things like this dropping out of the sky . . .

Crazy, huh?  Nothing like some good ol’ fashioned love from our Canadian cousins.

Oh, and there were helicopters too!  Pretending to rescue people.  Not bad.  Not bad at all.

But the star of the show?  The BLUE ANGELS!  Look how shiny they are!

We saw them the day before flying around when we were at the fair, so we didn’t stay out this time and bake in the sun for another chance to see them (see Mom–not only did we have our sunscreen on, but we totally limited our sun exposure . . . aren’t you proud?).

We did partake of some sweet treats though . . .

That’s the Mr.’s What the Heck?! look when he finally notices that I’m taking a ton of pictures of him doing everyday things like eat an ice cream cone.  But he’s just so dang awesome . . . how could I not take pictures of him, right?

Okay, but back to the show . . .

There may or may not have been a lot of this happening:

Me: “Tower, this is Ghost Rider requesting a flyby.”

Mr.: “Negative, Ghost Rider, the pattern is full.”

and this . . .

Me: “Talk to me, Goose.”

Mr.: “We’re getting awfully low on fuel Mav.”

Yeah–we’re awesome.  Totally awesome. 🙂

  1. so glad you had your sunscreen on. I hope it was at least 50 🙂 Mom doessn’t get points for the visor though. Sun goes threw hair. Love those blue angels. Been to their bar in Pensacola. Oh the stories I could tell.
