Stunts in the Air


Yesterday while almost everyone in the neighborhood was either inside staying cool or watching the Olympics, we trekked up our hill in the mid-day heat (it was a record-breaking 93!) to watch the Blue Angels perform their stunts high above Lake Washington.  They were in town for Seafair.


A family with two little bored boys was right beside us. The oldest, maybe 5, was whining impressively until the accomdating Angels flew right over our heads.


and headed off, I think, right over our house. All the dishes seemed to be in place when we got home though.  Gold worthy flying, don't you agree?


Ever since January 2012 I've been working on my own goal: to incorporate the weekly TAST (link on sidebar) stitches onto a block per month of these SunBonnet Sue designs. Number seven is done. Hurrah!

Look who has his own new stunt!!!  Thanks for the photo, Catherine.

I love the Blue Angels and have seen them perform once at an air show. However, while driving to Denver, I've seen them swooping over I-25 as they circle back over the stadium for Cheyenne Frontier Days. It's such a thrill.

Your photos are wonderful - I love the first one the best.

How precious is that last photo. Too cute!

So glad you had blue skies for the Blue Angels. They really are something, aren't they. And that little guy has to be the cutest kid I ever saw! What a smile--lights up the room!

What a delightful little smile that is - they eyes say it all, ton't they? Can't wait to see all those Sue's lined up -- in a quilt?

What a sweet little MAX!

We used to see the Blue Angels A LOT when we lived in Penna. We lived just south of the naval air station in Willow Grove. There is nothing like an afterburner blast right over your apartment. LOL

I miss the blue Angels. they used to fly right over our house to the landing strip a mile away at the Glenview naval air base......
my son would come running with his ears covered, and crying!

Your bonnet year is coming along so nicely

Baby clapping.....such joy. Adorable. Love the pillows surrounding the babe in case of a topple over

First off, Max's picture makes me smile! What a doll!

Sue's block finished up nicely. You really had to be creative with your Algerian Eyelet. Nicely done. Love the sweet little bird and those fancy shoes.

Definitely gold-worthy I'd say! Those pilots are so brave and clever.
Glad to see all is well with you Judy...I've been having a catch-up with all your photos and news.
Thanks for your kind comments :-)

First of all, welcome to Baby Madeline! Your niece must have been so frustrated to be hospitalized and on bed rest. That time gets to seem so long. So happy all turned out well. And the photo of Max is darling! What a happy baby! Last of all, those are great shots of the Blue Angels, the first one especially!!

Max has the most beautiful smile and he is too clever. That would have been amazing to watch the Blue Angels.
