The Navy base up the road from us in Millington hosts a big airshow every other year. In 2003 and 2005 we were away the weekend it happened. This year, we put it on the calendar in the spring, and as it got closer, we got very excited.
We watched the first half of it from one of Scott's properties and had a fine picnic, but we headed over in the afternoon to see some planes up close on the ground and the Blue Angels up close in the air.
All morning, Ryan kept asking, "When are we going to see the planes?" We thought he could skip a nap.
