We went to an air show a couple of weeks ago at Andrews AFB and it was the first time that either boys had been to one. It was a "boys date" and begrudgingly they allowed me to come and were not interested in having pictures taken on their date (so were pleased when I left my camera back at the car and suprisingly enough no one offered to go and get it for me!). The boys were so excited and LOVED the show. So for the next week (plus) Caleb has been pretending that he is one of the Blue Angels (I keep forgetting what they are called and keep calling them Blue Thunder which is the name of Caleb's bike..Caleb thinks it's ridiculous that I can't remember the Blue Angel's name and Joseph thinks it's ridiculous that I name bikes)! He even made a plane out of a box - with a little help from Dad, but most of it was all him!
Here Caleb is doing his version of the Blue Angel salute that they give the crowd. (I missed the performance of the Blue Angels. I had a headache and went to take a nap in the car.) He is using his police helmet as his pilot helmet, his belt for a seat belt, and one of his drum sticks as a whatever they call those things that drive a plane (how in the world did this chick ever get boys!!)
and this is my favorite...
Caleb loves to wear his Daddy's shoulder boards on his clothes. And check out that salute!!!
For his birthday we ordered a kids size flight suit for him!! I can't wait until he get's it!! He's going to love it. Joseph even got to pick out the patches that we wanted on it.
