Family Friday - 08/15/08

We had a BLAST at the Chicago Air Show last Friday. It was, by far, the best air show we've been to. The only thing that would have made it perfect was if my dear friend, James, and her M clan were there.

We took Grandpa & Grandma to Rockstar Hotdogs for lunch
We parked on North Ave and walked to the North Avenue Beach. It was a beautiful day and there were a few dozen people headed in the same direction we were. Because it was the first day of the air show, we thought the beach would be over run with people. But it wasn't.
Motor Mouth had a great vantage point
The Blue Angels rocked the show!  
Like any true pilot, Motor Mouth likes to fly DURING the show

We had ice cream
Having the air show on the beach was great! 
When the kids got bored and during the intermission, they played in the water.
