Wings Over the Big South Fork

Yesterday, we went to a really cool air show in Oneida, TN. It was so much fun and the weather was perfect. So perfect, in fact, that we didn't realize we were all getting scorched. We're all red today but it was worth it. My whole family got to go (but we don't have a family picture...surprise), so it was a lot of fun to be together.

There was a parachuting demonstration. It was so neat, but we couldn't get any good pictures. The plane dropped about 9 jumpers. Then a smaller plane circled the sky with the smokey trail all around them. It was so much fun!

The boys really loved it. Occasionally, Daniel was a little scared of the loud noises.

This pilot was awesome! He did some really crazy stuff!

If you've never been to an air show and you have opportunity to go, let me tell you, "GO!" It's really a lot of fun. And this was a really small-scale show. They didn't even charge admission. I'd really like to see the Blue Angels now! I'm also hoping to use some pictures I got for the baby's room. I think a few of them will crop and enlarge okay, especially sepia or b&w. We also got some shots of propellers and gauges and things like that that will be cute in the room!

Thanks for checking in!

Glad you got to go! You should display the picture of you and Jamin by the airplane in Jackson's airplane room! :) (I probably didn't have to tell you to display a picture! haha!)

Beautiful pictures! I went to an airshow and I loved it (as I peeked through my fingers because I kept thinking they were going to crash!) I also remember getting a sunburn! I am so glad that you all had a great day in spite of the fact that I know how much Jamin hates airplanes..:)
I think there is a really neat plane museum place in Dayton. Hey, what a great place to meet up with Jase and Jeanene!!
Love ya!

Ringo and I saw the Blue Angels once when we were dating...very cool. And my sister, who works at Tinker AFB, took some picture of the Blue Angels a few weeks ago when they were practicing right outside her office. Good fun!

Looks like you had so much fun! I don't know why we didn't ever do anything like that when we were in Tennessee. I love the idea of using those pics in the baby's room. Very cute :)
