The in-laws were in town for the past week or so and we took the kids down to Waikiki to watch the Air Force Thunderbirds put on a show. A local reporter was there snapping pictures for the paper and passed a few pictures along to me. Little Man was so impressed with the show that he declared he wants to "be a Thunderbird" when he grows up! We spent the next week playing "jets" and he is now addicted to anything and everything having to do with flying on the Military Channel.
The Blue Angels will be in town next month and I'm springing for box seats with some friends. I have a feeling Little Man will change his mind and want to become a Blue Angel when he grows up. Which, I am sure, will please Uncle Lex ;)
We just returned from the Big Island last night. I have a ton of pictures to go through but I'll get them up soon, I promise!
