The South

Where tea is sweet and accents are sweeter; summer starts in April; front porches are wide and words are long; macaroni and cheese is a vegetable; pecan pie is a staple; Y’all is the only proper pronoun; chicken is fried and biscuits come with gravy; everything is darling and someone is always getting their heart blessed. -unknown

The Air Show

These are pictures of our outing to the air show at Maxwell AFB this past weekend. They are in reverse order and blogger is not cooperating, but I don't want to redo the whole post.

This was in front of the Raptor. It was the only plane (that I saw) that was roped off and being guarded by armed guards. One of Brent's friends was there and telling us about this plane. Shortly, he will begin his training to learn how to fly it.
These were the famous Thunderbirds.

This picture reminds me of the scene in Top Gun..."Keeping up foreign relations."

I don't know who this goof ball is.
Or these.
These planes were impressive too. I don't know what kind they were, probably because I wasn't paying close enough attention.

The Army's Golden Knights Parachute Team. I can't believe how high they were when they jumped out of the air plane.

Some other huge plane taking off. Hello Mr. Pilot. I can see you in there.We had a great time with some great friends. The boys were tired when it was all said and done, but Brent and I enjoyed it!

These are great pics! Of course I forgot my camera :( When I showed these to the boys, they immediately went for their toy planes and are recreating the air show!
