Air shows

Whether on land or water, we used to love watching the Air and Water show in Chicago as well as the practices where the jets zoomed right by our office windows taking everyone by surprise in the Sears (or now, Willis) tower. 

This just doesn't have the same feel as this. Did you know that they have a special "low ceiling" show here? It looks like it's clearing up so this afternoon's show may not be like last year, but I'm just not into it like I used to be.

This is pretty freaking cool too. I remember as a kid holding my breath during these plane drops because I felt certain they were going to crash into the water below. Still amazes me today. 

Oh Chicago, how I miss thee.

Typical Seafair weather is clear and blue as is most of August altho the last few years have not been so nice. (eye roll as I'm sure you hear this alot) and since you;ve only been here a few years it probably doesn't help to hear that but most of July and August are not like this.

I think it's all part of what we're used to. No matter where we're from. :)

WE MISS YOU, TOO!!!! Aren't you coming to visit any time soon? Although, I'm still dying to come visit YOU. I was just talking yesterday about how I want to move to Seattle. ;-)

The Blue Angels are from Pensacola, FL where I am from!! We always go to the beach show in July. We have to get to the beach around 6am to get a good spot and we are there until around 4 in the afternoon. Those are the best days!!
