Chicago Air Show

Today we went to the Chicago Air & Water show. Although we did not see much of the water show, we weren't too disappointed because of the coolness of the air show.

Nate and Lyla on the shuttle (aka school bus) to North Avenue Beach

There, we met up with these cool people...

And these cool people...

Lyla was so terrified at how loud some of these fighter jets were. They were at a mach 3.5, which is appx. 2000 mph. They were really fast and really loud. Thankfully, our friends brought these sound-barrier earmuffs (I don't know the official name for them). Picture is a little blurry, sorry!

I LOVE this picture! After a while, Lyla got used to the headphones and started playing by herself, minding her own business.

These planes would fly up and then shoot back down and swoop back up again. They were awesome!

Getting close to the water.

A huge plane. Picture doesn't do it justice.

Overall, we had a really great time and we are glad we went!

ON A DIFFERENT NOTE... some cute pictures taken in the last week....

Lyla has her daddy wrapped around her little finger :)

"I know Glenn, what IS the deal with Obama's universal health care policy?!" Lyla is eating up every word :)
