Jaden loves airplanes, helicopters, jets, birds, just about anything that flies in the sky. So when we heard there would be an air show in town, we had to take adantage of the opportunity. The weather was beautiful outside and the airplane shows were pretty amazing. Jaden got to see (and hear) them up close. We weren't quite prepared for just how loud it would be. We forgot the baby headphones at home, so Elijah had to settle for a makeshift pair and I didn't realize until after the LOUD F-16 show that Jaden's comprehension of "cover your ears" was to simply cup his hands over them, no pressure applied! Poor guy, I should have paid better attention. But we had such a great time! He even got to sit in a real helicopter, stand in a military vehicle of some sort (help me out here, Mr. Bejarano), and Sam got to pose with his beloved delorean. And my personal favorites were the cute little airplanes that did loops and swirls in the air while colorful smoke puffed out of the rear. So cute!
