Air Show Fun - and Other People's Giveaways

Greetings from home! Oh, it is so nice to sleep in my own bed - I was out like the dead last night! So of course after a long week away, it makes total sense to spend the day away at a local air show.

North GA gals, the Wings Over Atlanta air show also runs on Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The Canadian Snowbirds, Sean D. Tucker and the Blue Angels will all be performing - plus there are tons of aircraft on display, food and other activities. The entire population of Atlanta was seemingly in attendance (but that's part of the fun, right? :oP ) and I am burnt like heck - but I totally recommend attending and bringing the fam if you're close. Plus admission and parking is free, and I like free!

Here's a medley of badly-taken photos from the show:

Because animal print is IN right now.

  5. I've never been to an airshow before, but you look like you had tons of fun!

  6. When I arrive home from a long week away, all I want is to stay home. So kudos to you for getting the heck out of Dodge to see some flying fun. Love the Tigers in the back ground. My Father was a Navy Jet mechanic. Laura

  10. Looks like so much fun. I haven't been to the air show in YEARS. We used to go to the one at Andrews Air Force Base (in MD) almost yevery year. Thanks for mentioning my giveaway!

    Enter to win a $35 gift certificate to CSN stores now through October 31st!


  11. Thanks for your comments, gals!

    Jen - I wish I had a cooler hat than just a baseball cap. Too bad it didn't provide me with the side head protection I needed - all looking up at the sun the whole time to watch the air show got gave me a funny burn from the nose down!

    Laura - I am sunburned and dead tired today! Usually after a trip I like nothing better than a lazy day at home watching TV and doing laundry!

    curls-and-pearls / 20 York Street - the Snowbirds were pretty awesome! Sure they don't get to fly the super bad fighter jets, but they make up for it in showmanship and precision.

    Melanie - I bet Andrews has some good air shows. I think they're really fun but I sure wouldn't want to go to them all the time. The heat, the walking, the crowds, yikes!

  12. It looks like so much fun! My family has gone to a quite a few air shows since I was a kid (we have a lot of family in the military) and your pictures bring back such fond memories! I have a giveaway on my blog right now for $100 to shopbop if you're interested!
