Backyard Fun!5:35 PM
We have been enjoying the best weather yet, granted we're already up in the 90's and if you can believe it, I've already gotten my first tan LOL
I'm lucky, I tan extremely easy and quickly, I don't burn, I just become dark right away and this afternoon I walked by Jasmine and she says "Mommy, you got a tan, you're all caramel now" Hahahah
Anyway, I want to tell you, or actually SHOW you how we spent our afternoon. I tell you that living on a military base does have it's ups and downs, mostly ups for me because the benefits and that feeling of security far outweigh anything that may be viewed as a nuisance. One of the best things for me is having an Air Show right in my back yard.
Don't believe me? Every day we have the F-16's flying above, but when it comes to this time of the year and we have the Air Show, then our backyard becomes the stage for some of the most amazing stunts ever.
This afternoon the kids got out at 1pm and it was SO hot already that we came home and headed out to the backyard....the sprinkler was turned on and the kids got to play around in their swim gear while mama snapped pictures and videos of the air show practice RIGHT above our house.
The Thunderbirds flew so low it almost felt like you could touch them....amazing!
So here you go, just a preview of what's to come, because you can bet your sweet behind that we'll be over there tomorrow, indulging in aircrafts, watching the Thunderbirds and the parachuting and all that fun stuff.
Now how's that for our own private show? It was so much fun following the planes around and I'm so happy with my camera, the zoom on it is amazing.
The kids loved being out playing in the sprinkler and then I slathered on tons of sunblock and they sat in the sun for a few minutes enjoying the Thunderbirds above us.
It was such a great afternoon, and it left me yearning for all the summer days ahead.
I'm off to watch the last episode of Lark Rise to Candleford, I can't believe it's over, I'm so sad I don't know how I'll survive until next year waiting for the new season....I also have some more cupcakes to crochet, with so many of you interested in them, I may start making a few to giveaway and sell.
I'll leave you with a video I shot earlier, there are a couple of fly by's that I was able to shoot REALLY close, even my hubby is amazed at how awesome it looks...so enjoy.
