8 Nov -- Moody AFB Air Show

We had a busy, hot week down here in Georgia.  It was in the mid to upper 80's all week.  Not natural temperatures for me in November!

 George fights naps some days, and some days the naps fight back.

The following are pictures requested by George.  "Take my picture with Rosie!"

 I may have edged my way into one or two pictures, despite not being invited to the party.

I bought a game called Pie Face.  Not sure whether it's a win or not, but it did make for some funny pictures. 

 Jane's 2nd Grade had a performance this past week.  They sang "Under the Sea" from the Little Mermaid and "The Circle of Life" from the Lion King.  She loves a good performance!

It was the Air Show this weekend at Moody AFB.  We had a great time there, despite the blazing temperatures and the small fact that I let them wear their flight suits to the hot flightline. 

 It didn't seem too far from the parking lot walking to the air show, but walking back was a bit painful.  And one of my wagon wheels gave up on me at the end and cracked in half.  

 Getting to climb up into the planes was so much fun for the kids!

 The kids saw a friend from the Breakfast Club at their school for kids with deployed parents.

 Charlie couldn't get enough of the Alabama Boys show.  They "confiscated" a plane and flew it around while the grandpa shot at it and then it had to land on a truck.  The music got Charlie's feet a 'bouncin' to the banjo.

 Charlie was pretty sure the keys were still in the ignition and had he been more of a rebel he could have ridden off into the sunset with this ATV

 CSAR demonstration with the A-10s, C-130 and Helicopters. 

 After about 2 and 1/2 hours, we headed back to the van and headed home to cool off with a stop for Icees on the way.   Then we met up with friends at the Grand Bay Wildlife Area to walk out to an old fire tower to watch the Thunderbirds in action.  It was actually a pretty amazing spot to watch the show from.  We saw the show at the flight line in the distance and they they zoomed all around us forming up for the next pass over.  

We had a special performance by Henry this morning at church.  He did so well.  Like a proud Mom, I recorded the whole thing, but apparently blogger does not appreciate the full performance and won't let me upload it.  Trust me, though, it'd bring tears to your ears.
