Ada Air Expo 09

Well...we're back from yet another summer trip. This past weekend, we went down to Ada for the annual airshow. It just gets better and better every year. Ethan LOVED it this year! He was super excited to see all the planes. He's been every year since 2006. If you want to see pics from last year, go here. Here is just a small sampling of the events this year. It was a great show!

I just LOVE this little boy!

Ethan wanted to fly in an airplane soooo bad. And when your papa is the air boss, you get your way. Except ET didn't actually fly. We told him he had to be 4. Hope he doesn't remember that next year!

Ethan and Zann with Zann's uncle Jeff, his dad's brother.

Amy will LOVE this!

One of my favorite things at the air show is the race. Each year they have a corvette race an airplane. You know the airplane is going to win but it's still fun to watch and always a crowd favorite. This year is was a Porsche, or Porch as Ethan calls it. See the little black blob in the far upper right corner? That's the Porsche. It broke 100 mph but didn't come close to winning. Super cool!

Zann did get a ride in an airplane. He got to ride in one of the acrobatic planes and had a blast. This was right before take off.

And who doesn't like watermelon on a hot day? We were out at the Ada airport from 9 am - 5 pm on Saturday (under a huge tent) and the watermelon hit the spot! Not to mention all the snocones we had as well. The Ada Air Expo happens every year on Father's Day weekend. It's a super fun family friendly activity so come join us next year! I promise I'll share my tent if you get too hot!
