Cheddarsphere at the Air Show

Saturday, for the second year in a row, the Drinking Right crowd attended the Janesville Air Show. We had our VIP chalet, which thank GOD had shade!! We were privileged to see The Army Golden Knights parachute team, the Super Shockwave Jet truck (capable of doing 376 mph), the F-18 demo team, the Canadian Snowbirds, and the U.S.A.F. Thunderbirds, just to name a few. Between the different performers, I let the Boy and his friend wander around. They came back with a picture autographed by the entire Golden Knights team...AND, they let the kids help pack a parachute!! It made their day!! (Pssst - ya might want to re-check that chute!!)

Here are just a few of the pictures I took. I apologize for the quality, or lack thereof, but I was absolutely melting from the heat and humidity, and I haven't even begun to edit them.

While the show was phenominal, there was one thing that surprised and saddened me. On this memorial day weekend, while we are remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice, I was stunned that no one did the missing man formation. If any of y'all were there and I am mistaken, PLEASE let me know. Though I don't know how it could have happened, I'm hoping that somehow I missed it.

All in all, it was a fabulous day. A HUGE shout out to AB for making the arrangements again. You are the BEST! :)


  1. Did you remember your 9million SPF? :)

  2. Indeed I did!! It kept melting off, but I certainly remembered it!!
