My dad was in the Air Force. He took us to air shows yearly when I was younger, and even at a young age my heart would swell with pride for our country and for those who defended our freedom.

So much that I spent my freshman year in college in the Air Force ROTC planning on joining the military as an AF nurse.

Thanks for reminding me how much my kids would enjoy this now. Gotta check out when the next one is comin' to town!

Awesome pictures girl. I love those. Looks like an impeccable day. One of those "glad to be alive" days with a perfect back drop. :)

I love the blue angels! Chris was in an F14 squadron for a long time. When we were stationed at NAS Oceana we'd head over to the air shows. I saw that truck once and the trick plane. It was sooooo exciting! I always loved it. I would sometimes just go over and drop lunch off to Chris just so I could see the pilots doing their touch and goes in those super fast Tomcats!
