The Wild Blue Yonder...

Oh my, what a weekend we had. Albeit busy, we had a great time. Jayla had to be at the soccer field at 10:30am for team pictures. Then her game was at 11am. After her game, we got the Cheetah's together for their end of season party. We had cake and chips for them...as well as ALL the fixin's for ice cream sundaes. The kids loved it. And to top off their season, they all got trophies with the cutest little Cheetah on it.

This is Jayla after receiving her trophy. She's pictured with Coach Juan and Coach Daddy :-).

After the soccer festivities, me and the family went to grab some lunch (now that we've already had dessert...LOL)

Not that U6 soccer isn't exciting...but after grabbing a bite to eat, we headed to our next exciting stop of the day. We got a chance to see the Blue Angels fly in the air show that was held at Dobbins AFB. Oh my goodness!!! If you EVER get the chance to see these guys do their thing, you will NOT be disappointed. We were also able to see them 2 years ago which was the first time they had flown in GA in 17 years. So that was quite a treat...considering we didn't even know there WAS an airshow that day :-). It was Mother's Day and we were on our way home from dinner. We saw an unusual amount of traffic and finally noticed all the jets flying around...DUH!!! It's the airshow :-). So, we pulled over, got our folding chairs out of the van and watched the show. It was amazing. However, I didn't have my camera. But this year, we knew about it and I was prepared. So, without further adu, enjoy some of the pix I took of the Blue Angels in flight.

This is FAT ALBERT, landing after checking out the flying conditions for the Blue Angels.


Well, that's about it. Hope you enjoyed my photos. I must admit, I'm pretty proud of myself for getting these shots. Believe me when I say these planes are F-A-S-T!!! I think I got a touch of whiplash while trying to get some of these shots :-). But it was SOOO worth it!

Thanks for looking!!!

Oh darn, I forgot to mention. Markell had his EOS game on Saturday too. And they KICKED BUTT!!! They won 7 - 0!!! Go Stingrays!!!

I've seen these guys a few times from the roof of my house (in Colorado). They used to come to an air field close to our house every year and we'd just climb out of my parents' bathroom window and sit on the roof. I have some pictures somewhere... Pre-digital camera. :) It really is an awesome show. Good shots!
