Seafair 2009 – part 2

I don’t have pictures of our first parade of the year (Greenwood Neighborhood) because I went to take my first picture and realized at that point that I’d had forgotten my photo card at home. Bummer! And I had the cutest picture of Jordan and Bekah looking over the back of the camp chair at me just prior to the start of the parade. Oh well, one for the memory bank!

Our 3rd Seafair event found us traveling to the shores of Lake Washington on a cooking hot day to watch the Blue Angels do their air show overhead. I have taken the kids to this for most of the years we’ve been able to attend – a.k.a. ‘not sick from cancer or related effects’. After a while it seems that the pictures seem to look the same from year to year, but the sound and maneuvers are still thrilling. And when they make new passes overhead I know they have changed their show from the past years.

Enjoy some of our fun with us – which caused all of us veteran moms to don swimsuits and cool off in the comfortable water. And, not only was there excitement in the air but also on the water (Seattle Fire) and in the water (life guard rescued at 4 y.o. who went out too far and was bobbing – scary!!) Our 25 had a great time!
