Hill Air Show

The last weekend in June we headed to the AirShow on Hill Air Force Base. 
 I was so excited to be able to go "on base".  
Nathan thought I was weird, but I thought it was neat
 that we could go through the gates that were usually there to keep us out.
 I did not realize how HOT this was going to be, 
how far we'd have to park from the actual festivities,
 and how long we'd be there.  
So once we figured that for as far as we had to walk to get there, 
we were staying for awhile, it was easier to be okay with the heat.

Checking out different jets

 This one was huge

 The Thunderbirds (Airforce equivilant of the Blue Angels)
also preformed and we were there to see them!  
Wow, what a show, so close, so loud, and James and Jack liked it.
Jonathan...was okay unless they got too close and loud :/

 Who doesn't like holding an automatic weapon?

Long trip back to the car, which was
parked right outside the front gates on the 193 road.
My sandals were black,  got so hot,
we had to stop in the shady grass to cool off.
Jack is being funny and watching the ground go by.
