Delaney had a blast! I dressed her in this super cute, bright orange outfit so it would be easy to pick her out of a crowd. Brody was styling in his new threads and I was excited to go! The second we are in the gate, she is done with the stroller. Not only that, but she wanted to wear her hat, backwards like daddy. So much for the cute hair. My dad, Granddaddy to the kids, didn't help- he kept saying, "I'll hold her, I'll walk with her". So, he did. He showed her airplane after airplane. I was getting warm, so we found an airplane (an A-10 to be exact) and sat under the tail for some shade. Delaney and my dad were gone again and Brody and the big kids had some frozen lemonade. All of a sudden, Delaney comes back wearing a huge white shirt that my dad bought for himself and she wanted to wear it. So now, no cute clothes that I can seen from afar and no more cute hair. Oh well.....

We had a great time at the air show. My mom said it was just like watching my dad with me when I was little. Couldn't help but a little misty. Delaney loved it! Brody slept and looked around when he was awake with big eyes.

Brody sleeping. Won't sleep through the night, but will sleep through an air show.
The Thunderbirds are the big finale and we love watching them! Now, if you have never seen an air show or witnessed an F-16 doing an afterburner fly by....let me just tell ya....your jiggly parts will be jigglin. It is so loud, your insides shake. So awesome. Okay, so awesome for big people. For little people, like Delaney, it's terrifying. We knew the first one was coming, but couldn't get to the stroller in time to cover her ears and she lost control! She was screaming!!! They do three or four fly bys and they are so loud! At this point she was crying and saying, "No more youd airpanes Granddaddy. All done now ok?" So we decided to walk towards the car. They kids all fell asleep in the car and we have the memories of our first air show as a complete family.
Waiting for the Thunderbirds...
Daylen and Eric
Brody, happy man.
Still waiting and still happy...
Now not so much......
There we are....ONE BIG HAPPY FAMILY!
