Airshow Weekend

We had big plans for this past weekend.

The Amigo Airshow was in town and we planned to have a picnic at the park to watch instead of braving the crowds to get up close and personal.

Apparently, there was a of of wind because there really wasn't much of a show when it started.

Oh, well. We got to have a nice family picnic.

Jerry decided it was time to teach Josh the fine art of grilling.
Josh wasn't too thrilled with the lesson.
He thought it was too hot to use your fingers on the grill.
I have to agree.
Next time, we will bring some tongs.

Everyone enjoyed our dogs and relaxation time.

Then, Josh being Josh, couldn't sit still any longer.
So, he started a war with daddy.

I think Daddy won.
Better luck next time, Josh

After we got home and settled, the air show started in earnest.
So, we pulled up some chairs and watched from our back yard.

It was very impressive to have the planes zooming over our house.
Although it does make it hard to photograph said planes
when they are going about 300 miles an hour.

Geez, didn't they know I was trying to get some good pictures?
Slow down, fellas!
