For those of you that don't know, DH is in the Air Force and we live on an Air Force base. There are good things and bad things about our lifestyle, but today is a really good example of one of the fun things.
This weekend our base has been hosting an air show all weekend. DH and Jacob were at the actual air show, but I knew that would be way too much for Kat so we stayed home. The following photos are taken from the blanket that the two of us were laying on in our front yard using my Kodak camera. Because of trees and distance, we can't actually see the runway and a lot of the acrobatics, but I think that you will agree that the view from our front yard was pretty cool (and I can guarantee you that we were more comfortable laying on our blanket under the shade of the tree than most were walking around the air show.) *click on the photos to see them better*
The thunderbirds (my last photo before my battery died):
I love this photo! I just wish that the darn wires weren't in the way:
Japanese Kate torpedo plane:
Inverted Mustang (P-51):
The following 2 photos were T-6 Texans (an acrobatic group):
And of course, I had to take some photos of Kat too in between planes. She kept trying to take my lens cap:
It's starting to look a bit like autumn around here:
one last Thunderbird shot:
And in between plane viewing, I made some cards, but I will wait and share those tomorrow.
